Audience: All people can purchase tickets, both men or women, men are allowed to buy tickets, just not pitch, capiche? Just women will pitch, people of all genders may purchase tickets. The purpose of the event is to give women a platform to showcase their entrepreneurial talent.

Basis: Women are 50% of the American population. Yet, less than 8% of investments go to women businesses. Let’s join Warren Buffet in his vision :”We’ve seen what can be accomplished when we use 50% of our human capacity. If you visualize what 100% can do, you’ll join me as an unbridled optimist about America’s future”.

Scholarship Tickets: are available if the ticket cost is a challenge at this time, contact Mark directly at mark dot grimes at gmail

Of course, the presenters are NOT buying their tickets, pitch events that charge for pitching are uncool.
