Backbone Angels

Love this! – Women Leaders who helped build Shopify have launched a new angel group in Canada, focused on investing in women and non-binary founders with a specific focus on Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)-led companies.

Called Backbone Angels, the group consists of 10 angel investors who have held various management-level roles at Shopify. The launch of the angel group was announced on International Women’s Day. #wakeupimagine#IWD2021#ChooseToChallenge
