The Lebanese Women Angel Fund (LWAF) aims to redefine the role of women in business beyond social and economic boundaries, empowering women to become seed investors, and funding women entrepreneurs.
LWAF gathers novice women investors in a class and take them through a ‘learn & earn’ methodology consisting of education and investment.
Education wise, enrolled women will enhance their know-how through training opportunities via a curriculum covering all aspects of angel investing, delivered via educational videos, webinars, and in-person sessions by international expert business angels and coaches. Training topics will include early-stage investing overview, investor portfolio returns and liquidity, company valuation, deal terms, financials, due diligence, impact investing, investing strategy, follow-on rounds, and exit investments.
Investment wise, and so as to democratize angel investing and make it accessible to women from all walks of life, multiples of $10K entry tickets would be pooled from every participant and placed into a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) with investment tickets in a range of $50K-100K. The tickets will be invested in female-led ventures. Female business owners will be pre-screened and prepared to pitch in investment meetings organized every 6-8 weeks. By the end of the year, 3 to 4 investments would be made using a portfolio investment approach.
