The network meets quarterly, with the next meeting on December 1, 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. Here’s how it works at each quarterly meeting.

  1. Participants learn from experts.
  2. Two selected women-owned businesses pitch to the participants.
  3. The group votes to select one business to receive financial gifts that evening.
  4. Each participant provides a financial GIFT of $100 to a local women-owned business.

“Fewer women invest because no one talks to them about investing. This hurts women’s total wealth over time, thereby exacerbating the gender wealth gap. In 2019, less than 3% of all VC investment went to women-led companies, and only 1/5th of U.S. VC went to startups with at least one woman on the founder team,” said Leslee Hill, Director, WEOC WBC at NIIC.

“Women drive the world economy as we control $31.8 trillion in consumer spending. We need to learn to invest to change the landscape from ‘consumer spending’ to ‘generational wealth.’”
