VT WIN is a safe place for female entrepreneurs to share their story, practice their pitch, and learn how to invest with their values in a variety of ways.
The Vermont Women’s Investor Network (WIN) supports all women, trans and gender non-conforming investors in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Vermont. Our long-term goals include pooling skills, expertise, and capital to fund women and trans entrepreneurs and business owners to create positive environmental and social impact while generating a financial return.
VT WIN hosts events ranging from day-long training sessions on early-stage investing, to intimate “salon” style gatherings, and local viewing of NNEWIN live broadcast panels or archived ACA webinars with tri-state virtual discussion.
ME WIN facilitates connections among women sharing lessons learned & building networks. Learn from experienced female founders and angel investors. These strong investor networks are key to a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.
VT WIN is not an angel group or investing club but we do work closely with angel funding providers. Entrepreneurs may contact us for information about Vermont angels and local resources. Accredited investors may attend monthly pitch meetings as a member’s guest.

VT WIN is a group of women who care passionately about investing in the businesses that help our communities thrive, with a special focus on those owned by other women entrepreneurs. Local WIN activities include Vermont monthly meetings, coffee talks, and visiting guest speakers. Individually and in small groups we also attend regional events in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, and participate in NNEWIN webinars.
“It was such a pleasure to be invited to your amazing circle. I left the meeting feeling so inspired and empowered! I have been running small businesses and have always been surrounded by mostly men so to be in a room full of such powerful women was truly a dream come true.”
“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been to... I’m going to call my wealth advisor today and find out what my money is invested in and figure out how I can align it with my values.”
“First, I need to let you know how grateful I am to have shared the early morning hour with you. Thank you for giving me so much of your time! Second, what a great experience!!! It was wonderful to share my first real "pitch" in an environment that was so welcoming, thoughtful, aware, insightful and educated. Your feedback during the meeting and from what I have received thus far is priceless to me.”
