EBAN has entered a cooperation with the Kauffman Foundation, Rising Tide Program USA/Next Wave and Go Beyond Investing to do the first ever Rising Tide Program Europe. This will gather 99 women across Europe and the USA to invest together €1+ million in Early Stage startups.

They will invest in 6-10 deals over a 12-18 month period. The lead investors are nine women with significant angel investing experience who want to support a new generation of angel investors investing a minimum of € 10k each. The other 90 investors will be women that are new and emerging angel investors (investing €10-30k each) and will learn about angel investing both via training sessions and being able to see how the 9 experts conduct due diligence and make the investments. All will be accredited investors as applicable in various countries. Go Beyond Investing is managing the European program. It is led by Brigitte Baumann, President Emeritus EBAN, EBAN Angel Investor of the Year 2014. Brigitte and Candace Johnson, the President of EBAN, will be one of the 9 lead investors of the Program.

If you are interested in learning more and/or joining as one of the 90, you can also contact Cindy Naegel, the project manager and one of the 9 lead investors at
