Your firm is majority women-owned.

Propel participants have already started a majority women-owned firm but need support launching their fund.

You’ve been a PEWIN member for at least 6 months.

PEWIN members can nominate themselves or other members by submitting an application and their fundraising deck.

“Pinklight provided the candid and constructive feedback on our pitch and differentiation that is rare to find from LPs as a new manager. During the process, Artemis built an amazing network of women that had been in our shoes before and became some of our biggest champions. PEWIN is a first class network of which we are proud to be members."

Stephanie Campbell

“A great experience getting hands on feedback on my pitch and deck from LPs and experienced GPs. Levelled up my pitch and helped to convince institutional investors and enable us successfully reach a final close."
