This event has been postponed. A new date has not been scheduled yet.
Why do women-led companies have a tough time raising money from investors? Why do investors have a tough time funding women-led companies?
Do women lack creativity? Do they lack leadership? Are they less innovative?
Do these questions make you uncomfortable or angry? GOOD, because these are some of the perceptions that must be overcome for more women entrepreneurs to achieve success.
What is perception and what is reality? Is there a funding bias against women? Or maybe women do not present fundable ideas or make fundable presentations. What are the reasons why women have a more difficult time than their male counterparts infinding capital to start or grow their businesses?
The WeROC Conference is a one-day event to be held every October to investigate the “WHY” and the “HOW”. Why do women-led companies have a more difficult time raising capital, and how can we change mindsets and shatter perceptions?
The WeROC event is targeting female & male influencers and investors who focus on investing in women-led companies and women entrepreneurs looking to overcome the hurdles of raising equity for their companies.
In the afternoon, 4-8 regionally pre-selected women entrepreneurs will each present their company in a ten-minute “pitch” to a panel which includes venture capitalists, investors and influencers. The panel will be encouraged to give candid, direct feedback to help the presenters raise funds. These companies will have been mentored through the VentureCapital.org mentoring process.
A reception for all participants will follow where the investors, influencers and entrepreneurs will be able to network and discuss the topics that were presented during the day.
