We all know that tech investment needs more women, and Natalia Oberti Noguera thinks that female philanthropists are ripe for the training.
We recently had Noguera into the VentureBeat office to chat about overarching issues of women and technology. In this video, she discusses what her project, the Pipeline Fellowship, is doing to improve the gender split in the industry and visibility of women leaders and role models in technology.
The Pipeline Fellowship trains women who already give money charitably to nonprofits and other organizations to start making angel investments. These women are introduced to early-stage startup financing through a program of education, mentorship and hands-on practice. Fellows in the program commit to investing in a woman-run, for-profit startup at the end of the training.
