WomanCon brings together some amazing women entrepreneurs – both on and off the stage. Women hear the REAL behind-the-scenes stories from female founders who have achieved incredible success while juggling multiple roles, families, and everything in between.
Expert keynotes and panel discussions include angel investors, venture capitalists, startup experts, journalists, PR, branding and more.
Part inspiration and part practical advice, WomanCon 2014 was hosted recently in New York City. Did you miss it? We caught up with the conference to see how women rocked the conference this year. Check out the highlights and photos below:
- The Pitch the Media panel was helpful: We had a variety of media – TV, Print, Freelance and PR Professionals who gave candid and constructive feedback to 10 Women Entrepreneurs – ranging from a coffee brewer to a IT solutions company, a financial advisor, a style expert to a health and exercise lifestyle expert. It was the HIT of the afternoon. When panel was over, the audience swarmed the stage. We are actively developing this “Pitch the Media’ panel into an on-going, formal in person and online series.
- Carrie Kerpen: Carrie’s high energy talk about her business and her life and how they are intertwined, captivated the audience. She took the time to give one on one feedback to a dozen women in the audience who couldn’t get enough of her!
- Breakouts: This segment of WomanCon was designed to offer a variety of content to different stages of entrepreneurship. We had a legal session with our sponsor, CT (A Wolter’s Kluwer Company), a crowdfunding/finance session with Jan Mercer Dahms of Plum Alley, a Mindfulness Based Achievement session with Vanessa Loder, a health session with Renuka Pinto of Duffy and Bracken Physical Therapy and a social media section with Carrie Tylawsky, a protege of Carrie Kerpen from Likeable Media.
- The Networking session was unique in that we had a representative from Upright Citizen’s Brigade (co-founded by Amy Poehler’s) do a warm up for the CT hosted networking event which allowed for more free flowing conversation.
