About Us

We represent a cross-section of entrepreneurs, investors, academia, government, media, non-profit and industry organizations focused on breaking down barriers for women in high-growth entrepreneurship across the pipeline from college graduate to founder and CEO.

If you would like to be considered for the Summit, please email a request for an invitation to invitation@weownitsummit.com. Please provide your name, organization and a bit about yourself.

At the inaugural Summit in 2010, 1-year and 10-year goals were agreed upon by the attendees. In June 2011, we measured our progress to the first year's goals, and set new goals for year two to ensure that by the end of the decade the barriers are removed and the opportunities are realized.
