Spring Summit

Join us on May 10-13th, 2021 for a week of inspiring keynotes, actionable sessions and fun networking opportunities.

This summit is focused on funding, with the theme”VC and beyond”. We’ll discuss everything from traditional venture capital, corporate venture capital, angel investing and friends and family rounds to good old-fashioned revenue, bank loans and SBA loans to grants, US/government grants, SPACs, SEALs, invoice factoring, cashflow and more. Women only receive a fraction of VC dollars and it’s time for us to find the money we need to grow our businesses in new and creative ways.

Let’s do this together!

Registration is now open!

Here’s what an attendee said about our most recent event, The Wave:

The Wave Tour exceeded all my expectations. The speakers and panels were exceptional, the content fresh with new perspectives. This conference was well run and provided insight for all levels of women entrepreneurs. Major kudos to Jenn LeBlanc and the team that pulled this together. Thank you for a day full of valuable nuggets and takeaways.
