// VISIONARIES (YES, THAT’S YOU!)
Is the entrepreneurial spirit alive in you? Are you ready to create something real or leave your home office and solopreneur existence? Come to the Whiteboard Pitch and meet women just like you who have taken the steps to make their dreams a reality. See what “pitching” to investors looks like, meet with someone in your same space or place, and feel firsthand the value of connecting with other women who want to see you succeed!
The Whiteboard Pitch is more than a 5-minute experience, it’s your opportunity to show the value you are creating for the world to an audience who is in your corner! .• All accepted pitch applicants will be given access to an hour long one-on-one mentoring session to get feedback from seasoned vets to fine tune your pitch before the event (All mentors are VCs, Angel Investors, or Entrepreneurs who've successfully raised capital)
• There is no better place to pitch as everyone at the event is already invested in supporting female entrepreneurs, providing a warm and encouraging audience.
