The Event—A Spotlight On Entrepreneurial Women

Women are an integral part of entrepreneurial ecosystems. There are more than 8.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating over $1.3 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 7.8 million people, and robust new networks of women continue to make an indelible impact on economies all over the world.

Women now account for more than half of all graduates from both bachelors’ and PhD programs in the U.S. What sorts of entrepreneurial communities will be best positioned to attract this talent? What does inclusion look like from women’s perspectives? What, to paraphrase Sheryl Sandberg, can we do to make sure women aren’t entering startup environments with lowered expectations? These are the questions we’ll be diving into in September.

 

Format and Topics—Provocative and Productive

Even a 50-year-old company needs to have a startup mentality to stay viable in today’s climate of constant disruption, and that mentality means questioning everything, all the time. After all, your biggest competitor in five years might not even exist today. So what are the different building blocks of success, and how are they changing? How can women entrepreneurs construct their own startup ecosystems? How are the most productive networks formed? Why do even the most experienced people in business need mentors? And where can they find them? As new funding models emerge, what is the best route to securing financing? We’ll explore all of these questions while building new networks through both our program sessions and our conference-ending party (complete with surprise musical performance).

 

Attendees—Leaders Onstage and Off

This will be a gathering of entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, creatives, and students committed to enabling and supporting the women-led startups and transforming the next generation of businesses. We’ll have national press on hand, as well, to both contribute to and report on the conversations we have. And, yes, both men and women are welcome to attend. Macky auditorium can accommodate more than 2,000 people.
