Who are we ?
WA4STEAM is a growing international community of women angel investors seeking to expand women entrepreneurial presence in the STEAM fields.
Our history started in 2017, after participating in a European Union Business Angels for Europe’s Entrepreneurs Program (WA4E) at IESE (Spain). At program termination, a group of women, decided to set up a non-profit association focused on supporting other women’s initiatives.
WA4STEAM members are more than business angel driven by profitability, since they aim not only to provide seed capital, but also to become a strategic partner nurturing women future leaders and role models.
The association members hold a wide variety of backgrounds with professional expertise in biosciences, mathematics, finance, engineering, law, accounting, communication, team coaching and training. Altogether these backgrounds may add significant value to the early stages of start-ups life cycle.
Furthermore, we count with a broad network of strategic partners and other angel groups, which reinforces our angels’ investment capability by connecting our portfolio companies to other ecosystems.
