    • About LetsVenture &

      WIN (Women Investor Network)

       

      Founded in 2013 LetsVenture makes the process of fundraising (early and growth stage) easy, efficient & transparent for both startups and investors. In the last 7 years, LetsVenture has helped 300+ early stage startups raise $200 M on the platform from 28 active Syndicates, 6500+ investors from 52 countries, micro funds and family offices.

      LetsVenture's WIN is a program setup to bring more women investors to the angel investing table. We see more women actively angel investing leading to more women eventually running Angel Syndicates, taking board seats in startups and pushing a larger change for women in leadership. WIN is facilitating a cohort based learning program over four weekends, providing an answer to the question, "How to go about investing in startups?"

The speakers took care to simplify the process and answered the queries with great patience. A very logical build-up of the sessions gave me a continuity and better understanding of the process. Got an opportunity to listen to personal stories of some of the stalwarts in this field.....Great start to a journey I wish to pursue."

      Cohort #2

      The WIN Angel Investing Program has been a real eye opener and excellent learning experience. Being a founder myself, it has given me the opportunity to look at investing from a different perspective. The 4 weeks were planned meticulously with stellar speakers for varied topics from Deal Evaluation to Syndicate Valuation and Exit strategy. A comprehensive, detailed and very insightful program with an enthusiastic cohort of women has been extremely enlightening and knowledge based. Small things like connecting us to the last cohort, the varsity and support from the LetsVenture team added a lot of value to WIN. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about the amazing angel investing world!

      Cohort #2

      Angel Investing is a buzz word that many talk about however this initiative of WIN is truly phenomenal. Not only is it motivating women to become Angel investors but even better is the guidance, mentorship and demystification course that they have put together. I really enjoyed it and feel relatively confident with Angel Investing. At least now I know whom to approach if stuck which is a great feeling. Thank you so much!

      Cohort #2

      I started my investing journey about 2 years ago, but there were still multiple aspects around Angel Investing that I was struggling with. The WIN program by LV not only helped me resolve most of these doubts, but also reinforced some of the learnings and understandings I had during my individual journey. Live interactions with some of the best in the industry, discussing their view points on different aspects of startup investments were my biggest takeaway. I have also expanded my network with over 60 amazing women from different walks of life. I am definitely looking forward to collaborating with them and LV as we all get involved with startup investments. Kudos to the team behind the WIN program for the great job they did in putting together the lessons, the speakers and seamlessly coordinating it all.
