“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.” ― Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter.

AREAS WE WORK IN:
Dazzle Angels is a Female-Focused Angel Fund that is led and funded by experienced businesswomen. The goal is to solve the radical gender inequality in early-stage investment management and deployment. It is based on the belief that 50% of early-stage funding should be managed by women, and invested into women-owned or co-founded businesses.
The Angels not only invest their money, but also invest their time, skills and networks, which is where the real value lies. All of their Angels are successful entrepreneurs or experts in their field, are passionate about building early-stage businesses, leveraging their skills and networks to help the 'Zebras' build the next generation of female-led businesses
