Why You Should Apply To The HERstory Made Angel Fund 

This is NOT a Shark Tank type fund! We are NOT here to do "Mr. Wonderful" type deals. We are actually here to help women grow their business. While we don't have set terms, it will be easily negotiated with each selected company for mutual benefit. We are not Sharks, we are simply Wonder Women. Aside from our initial investment, we want to see you succeed. Our parent company was built into an international company that has helped many companies scale into new markets. So with that experience, we can serve in an advisory capacity depending on your needs. Apply Now! Let's Do This Together!
