This is NOT a Shark Tank type fund! We are NOT here to do "Mr. Wonderful" type deals. We are actually here to help women grow their business. While we don't have set terms, it will be easily negotiated with each selected company for mutual benefit. We are not Sharks, we are simply Wonder Women. Aside from our initial investment, we want to see you succeed. Our company, Just Fearless, was built into an international company that has helped many companies scale into new markets. So with that experience, we can serve in an advisory capacity depending on your needs. Apply Now! Let's Do This Together!
We are particularly, but not exclusively, interested in making investments in companies within Fintech, Insurtech, Internet of Things, Cannabis, Crypto, and AI industries, but open to others with the following exceptions. The following categories do NOT meet our investment criteria: coaching ventures (business coach and financial coach are on a case by case basis), franchises, not-for-profit organizations, podcasts, media platforms, and art productions. In addition, we do NOT fund companies where our investments are subject to a broker/dealer fee.
There is an application fee of $20 payable with application submission. However, there are NO other fees beyond this one time fee. Whereas many angel funds charge "presentation fees" and other fees in the hundreds and in the thousands , we charge nothing for the pitch presentations.
We have set a goal for Just Fearless for the number of women owned businesses to fund in 2019, so our next round of applications begins in order to facilitate reaching that goal.

Be ready to complete the application in one session. There is a one time $20 application fee due once your completed application has been submitted. The fee is nonrefundable and cannot be waived. There are NO other fees beyond this one time fee! HERstory Connections Members get 1 FREE Application for Funding!
From application to funding, our investment process takes 16 weeks on average. Steps in the process include two pitch presentations with the first round done virtually. Those selected for the final round will have the opportunity to pitch in person or virtually .
It will be followed by approximately 6 to 8 weeks of due diligence. Due diligence includes close examination of the company, team, products or services, and customers. During the due diligence process, we may review and/or negotiate an existing term sheet. The final step is a legal and accounting diligence necessary to document the investment.
Applying does NOT guarantee funding. We Review applications on a rolling basis in batches. We reserve the right to pass on an application for any reason and at our sole discretion. Due to the volume of applications received, we will only be able to contact those who have been selected to continue in the process. Thank you again for your application submission.
