We Own It Summit

Posted on May 6, 2013 by youngbpwi in News from around the world

The We Own It Summit convenes visionaries, thought-leaders, idea generators, game-changers and disrupters to identify paths of success for women high-growth entrepreneurs: from women’s access to capital, to women’s participation on boards, to the full participation of women as investors. Open to men and women, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, policy-makers.

Roundtable discussions lead to actionable plans to make 2010 – 2020 the decade of the woman entrepreneur. Keynotes and panels of exceptional risk takers draw the larger funding and entrepreneurial eco-system into the conversation. A Global Pitch Competition highlights the most promising women-led high-growth companies, while the Awards Dinner celebrates great achievements in venture capital investment in women-led companies.

2013 Summit participants include:

Helena Morrissey, CEO of Newton Investments and Founder of the 30% Club

Ruth Owades, Serial Entrepreneur, Founder of Calyx & Corolla and Gardner’s Eden, lauded by Business Week as “Best Entrepreneur” for revolutionizing the fresh flower catalog business

Nicola Horlick, Chairman of Rockpool Investments, LLP, innovator in new investment vehicles, particularly for the film industry.

And many more…

Why you should attend:

You see the numbers. You’ve read the stories. You know it makes no sense that women account for less than 5% of venture-backed companies. You see the opportunity and you want to be a part of the change. You are a man or woman. You are an entrepreneur. You are an investor. You are an industry leader. You are an academic. You are a policy-maker. You are ready to create impact.
