Angel investors play a critically important role for early-stage startups, helping founders with their knowledge, network and funding. But an estimate of angel investors in the US indicates that 87% are White and 78% are male. How do those demographics impact the venture community? What voices and perspectives still need to be heard in angel investing? What challenges do founders who are female or people of color (or both) need to overcome?

Our panelists will share their experiences in the angel investing world, how they made their mark, and what obstacles remain to create a more diverse and effective angel investing community.
