Women founders and investors are invited to join Stella’s “Mission to Money” by participating in the ninth annual Women’s Venture Summit on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 16-17 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. PDT. Tickets were released today for the event, an effort that has helped Stella facilitate $71 million in fundraising dollars for women-led companies. The conference will return to an in-person stage at the Town and Country Resort located at 500 Hotel Circle North in San Diego.
“Women’s Venture Summit will address the conditions women are facing in a post-peak-pandemic world. This includes lower workforce participation and a squeeze on funding,” says Stella CEO Raven O’Neal. “We are serious about increasing female founders’ access to capital and giving new and seasoned investors the guidance they need to invest in more women-owned companies.”
After offering virtual attendance for two years, Stella will welcome individuals to an in-person event sponsored by UBS with access to high-profile speakers, powerful panelists and inspiring roundtable discussions.
