How it works
The Helm will source and curate deals that align with your interests then send them to you for review. You may choose whether or not you would like to invest and at what amount. (Please note: minimums will be dictated by the terms of the deal.)
The Helm also manages the investment process and administration to provide a more seamless experience. Other benefits of membership include access to a community of like-minded investors, exclusive content, and 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 actively reach out to 15% prospective Black members and 40% BIPOC
- Our Advisory Committee is comprised of 15% Black Advisors 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.
