The Point 25 Initiative

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.

Point 25 Overview

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?

The application deadline for the Point 25 Initiative Spring Series has now passed! If you would like to be notified about a future Series and/or be added to the waitlist for the Spring Series, please submit interest via the application link above. Thank you for your interest!

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.
