The Must-Attend Industry Event for Senior-Level Women in Venture Capital
The Women’s Venture Capital Summit is a dynamic, two-day conference designed to forge valuable relationships between senior-level women in venture capital.
Spun out from our highly-regarded Women's Private Equity Summit, and taking place at the truly special Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, the event will continue our tradition of creating exclusive, retreat-style gatherings that are conducive to candid discussion, meaningful connections and helping women in investment reach their full potential.
With soaring valuations, record IPOs, and increased interest from allocators in venture capital, we felt that the time was right to create a new, dedicated event to provide insight into the specific opportunities and challenges that seed, early-stage and growth investing present, as well as enabling more relevant introductions to the limited and general partners who will be pivotal to your long-term success in this distinct asset class.
At the heart of the Women's Venture Capital Summit will be a carefully curated audience of 300 attendees, representing LPs who are actively looking to invest in venture, GPs from both emerging and established VC funds, and relevant industry advisors.
A number of industry-leading speakers will provide valuable, actionable insight on portfolio and firm management, fundraising, market trends and innovation. Content will be delivered in a variety of formats, including fireside chats, moderated panel discussions, quick fire TINA Talks, breakouts and small, focused discussion groups, in order to make this as interactive and beneficial as possible.
A range of structured and spontaneous networking activities, and pre-bookable one-to-one meeting slots will also help to facilitate valuable peer-to-peer conversations and business introductions, making this a truly worthwhile couple of days out of the office!
The Women’s Venture Capital Summit is a continuation of our commitment to creating a community that helps women build valuable networks and promotes the advancement of women in private equity and venture capital. As a result, the conference itself is focused completely on business issues, not gender. Attendees come to our summits to get deals done.
