The premier conference series connecting 250 female entrepreneurs with 30 investors. The unique structure and high impact of The SheWorx100 Summit Series came from our research on the power of small group collaboration. There are dozens of conferences but many of them are competitive in nature. The ubiquitous pitch competition, for example, literally pits entrepreneurs against investors. So we had asked the question, ‘How do we turn this competitive dynamic into a collaborative one?’ and answered it through building a summit that did just that.
