Upcoming Events

IFEL is addressing issues of capital constraint through the innovative Making of Black Angels initiative, a movement to increase the number of Black angel investors and to create inclusion within the angel investment sector. 

5th Annual Women of Color Connecting Summit
Virtual Event 

 The WOCCON Summit is an invitation-only convening for investors, allies, and policymakers who want to deepen their understanding of the problems with the system that continues to keep women of color entrepreneurs locked out. The Summit will share stories about the unique entrepreneurial journey of women of color, facilitate honest conversations about allyship, and propose solutions that can lead to systemic change.    | Learn more about WOCCON Summit:

Entrepreneur Showcase


As part of the initiative, IFEL hosts an Entrepreneur Showcase Series to provide experiential angel investment learning opportunities, to help identify potential deal opportunities, and to connect with other new angel investors. During the showcases, founders present their 10-minute pitches, immediately followed by 10 minutes of Q & A by attendees on the call. The purpose of the showcases is to feature entrepreneurs with scalable enterprises to investors, including a mix of experienced investors and ‘investors-in-training’ who have just completed IFEL’s introductory angel investing course. 


The schedule of showcases, held virtually every quarter, is as follows: 

  • Q2: June 21, 2023

  • Q3: September 20, 2023

  • Q4: December 13, 2023


The Making of Black Angels program is made possible by generous funding from JPMorgan Chase
