Welcome to this angel investor education program. We’re delighted to have you join us to learn more about the skills and process of angel investing.
Scale Investors was founded in 2013 to increase the investment opportunities open to female innovators in Australia. We are a catalyst for change to solve for the investment gender gap. We do this by facilitating experienced women and men to invest into qualified early stage businesses led by exceptional females.
We’re totally committed to Australia's innovation agenda and building innovation skills in this country. Our work today is creating the jobs and companies of the future. The need for women to participate and to succeed is absolutely critical in delivering real equality.
We’re excited about this education program. Completing this program will enable a new angel investor to understand their path as an early stage investor and take the right steps to make their first investment. It also allows Scale to be anywhere, anytime, enabling investors from right across the country to build their knowledge of what it takes to succeed in early stage investing.
We’ve built this program leveraging five years of experience with our investor education process combined with interviews of 30 additional investors, experts and entrepreneurs. You will find a range of viewpoints that represent the leading current thinking in the Australian market.
We trust you will get immense value from the program – and look forward to co-investing with you in the near future.

The wonderful thing about early-stage investment if the array of people, ideas and opportunities you encounter. What I love about this education series is the diversity of views presented, which allow you to learn the different parts of investing in early-stage companies at your own pace and from many different perspectives.
Investing in startups at the beginning of their journey is as daunting as it is rewarding. There is so much to learn, from how to work with founders to the intricacies of the legal and financial aspects of making an investment. This early-stage investor education series goes into great detail in all the areas you need to understand to maximize the enjoyment and success of that journey.
I believe the Scale online education program will allow both new and experienced angel investors to gain additional knowledge about this important contributor to the Australian economy, via a self-paced program that can be accessed conveniently from home or workspace.
This Early stage investment education series enables an investor to get holistic insight into both the structure of the investing journey, the terminology used, and to the wisdom of investors who generously share their successes and their mistakes – both equally important in appreciating that no one investment is the same.
Early stage investing is hands on, conversationally driven, and relationship based. This series also enables new early stage investors to get a handle on the roadmap and terminology so that they can bring their strengths and experiences to the table more fully.
