Collective Investing & Experiential Learning

We are part of a new, more diverse cohort of investors - a collection of women with varied experiences and backgrounds from seasoned investors, entrepreneurs, and dynamic professionals. We combine our different expertise to learn from each other and make investment decisions together.

We are inspired by the ambition, talent and diversity of founders and want to fuel their success with our capital and our experience.

General Partners of WEL Toronto are Martha Malloy, Jane Tucker, Shadi McIsaac, Sally Morris and Mona Minhas.

No, this is an initiative where everyone in the group benefits and shares in the process equally which is what makes it educational and fun. There are no management fees. An admin fee covers operational items such as annual tax filings for the duration of the portfolio. To help sustain the organization, there is a small carry charge on profits after investors have been repaid their investment and admin fees. All participants profit equally.

Become an Investor

Learn by doing & build a portfolio at the same time

WEL Toronto provides a collaborative and fun environment for women to experiment with investing in early stage ventures with a small amount of risk capital. Here you’ll gain access to innovative companies, learn the ins and outs of investing, build your network of like-minded successful women, and create an investment portfolio of one or more companies. As a woman angel investor – you will be a leader and change-maker, inspiring other women to join the movement.
