Become a Member of The Helm Investor Community


Content. Community. Curated deal flow.

Membership to our Investor Community allows individuals to make investments into female-founded early stage companies. This is for novice and experienced investors alike who are committed to putting their dollars—small or large—behind the next wave of women-led innovation.

Applications will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis. Membership is open to all, but in order to make investments, you must be an accredited investor. (Note: This definition changed effective December 8, 2020)

Founding Members can join at a reduced rate of $500 until December 31, 2020. Please complete the form below to apply now or click here to gift the membership to a loved one.

How it works

Guided by your interests, we will source and curate investment opportunities for the community on a monthly basis.  It is up to you whether or not you would like to invest and at what amount. Leave the investment and administration process up to us.

New to angel investing? No problem – The Helm will provide exclusive funder content on how to begin investing as well as access to a community of like-minded investors. Last, but not least – we’ll throw in a discount to The Helm Shop.

Our commitment to equality

We are committed to ensuring equality across all of our platforms. For Membership, this means that:

  • 15% of the deals we evaluate will be from Black founders and 40% of the deals will be from BIPOC founders
  • 15% of the deals we invest in will be from Black founders and 40% of the deals will be from BIPOC founders by the end of 2021
  • We will work to actively recruit 15% prospective Black members and 40% BIPOC

If you are a company founded by a female-identifying or non-binary founder that is currently fundraising, we want to hear from you! Please fill out this form and be sure to complete all of the fundraising questions in the last section.
