The Point 25 Initiative – NY
June 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pmInvite Only
Point 25 matches the most promising women-led companies with amazing C-level Advisors for their Advisory Boards. The ‘Point 25’ name comes from the equity incentive of 0.25% that an advisor often receives when joining a startup’s advisory board. It is based on the belief that – while money is a large part of what determines the success of early stage companies – having the right network of helpful and influential advisors can really propel the business forward. This is also an effort to facilitate advisory board roles for prominent leaders who wish to give back to the startup ecosystem.
Invite only event. Application deadlines are May 15. Visit their website to see how you can apply. Each event (June 20, 22, 27, 29) will showcase 4 potential advisors. A member of the press will moderate an overview of their backgrounds and areas of interest. The advisors will then spend the next hour rotating around 4 tables (in 15 minute blocks) and speaking with a 3-4 pre-selected, women-led companies at each table. There will also be a reception afterwards where everyone can interact further. The events are invite-only and highly curated to maximize the quality of interaction and high-potential introductions.
