As part of a three-year, $300,000 grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to expand the angel investment community in Charlotte’s innovation economy, the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will host a seminar, “Angel Investing for Women,” with featured speaker Marcia Dawood on February 22, 2024, at The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City from 5:30 p.m.-8 p.m. .

Marcia Dawood - TEDx speaker, author and investor - is on a mission to bridge the gap from early stage inception to building thriving, profitable companies and empowering and educating women to realize their potential to invest in positive change. Seminar attendees can learn more about angel investing and how to “Do Good While Doing Well.”

Marcia Dawood is an early-stage investor who serves on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Small Business Capital Formation Advisory Committee, a venture partner with Mindshift Capital, a member of Golden Seeds, and the Chair Emeritus of the Angel Capital Association (ACA), a global professional society for angel investors.

Her upcoming book, Do Good While Doing Well – Make A Difference, Get Financial Rewards and Increase Your Happiness, is due out in 2024.

She is also an associate producer on the award-winning documentary film Show Her The Money, which debuted at the Women’s Film Festival in Philadelphia in September of 2023.

She is also a founding member and chair of the ACA’s Growing Women’s Capital Group, which is building syndication and collaboration among US investment groups focused on women-led companies.

There will be a social period with wine and food beginning at 5:30 prior to a short talk and Q&A session with Marcia.  Following Marcia’s talk, there will be an optional, informal session to continue networking and learning.
