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 & 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.

What Is The Format Of The Events?

Each event will showcase 4 potential advisors. A member of the press will moderate an overview of their backgrounds & areas of interest. The advisors will then spend the next hour rotating around 4 tables (in 15 minute blocks) & 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 & highly curated to maximize the quality of interaction & high-potential introductions.

What Are The Application Deadlines?
Applications are now CLOSED for the June Point 25 Initiative events. All invites (for applicants who applied by the May 15 deadline) will be extended by May 31st at the latest. If you would like to be considered for the waitlist for the June events and/or be notified when the application period begins for the next series of events this Fall/Winter, please note your interest via the link above. More information is coming soon on the next line-up of advisors!

What Are The Rules Of Interaction?

The focus of these events is on advisory boards, not fundraising, & it is up to the potential advisor if they want to ask separately about an opportunity to invest. There is no requirement that an advisor join a company's advisory board if they don't click with any of the entrepreneurs. It's up to the entrepreneur & potential advisor to continue discussions after the event & decide upon the exact level of involvement & equity incentive for the role, if they'd like.

Are You Seeking Advisors For Future Events?
Yes! If you're a C-Level executive and/or active advisor interested in being profiled at a future event, please provide more information HERE. Advisors should have no conflicts with their current company/commitments in taking on such a role. It is not necessarily to have prior experience as an advisor. Both men & women are welcome. Potential advisors should possess the desire to help women-led companies & be able to spend quality time giving strategic advice & making key introductions.
