If you plan to attend just MONEY DAY, click the Register Button below for a special one-day pricing of $325.


In the atmosphere of collaboration and camaraderie, contacts, education, sharing and networking to inform and empower you to 1) Access and effectively use “other people’s money”- bank and private capital, to grow, diversify or successfully exit your business, and 2) Preserve and grow your wealth.

Women CEOs and business owners who run enterprises generating revenue above $10 million, who want to develop new or deeper relationships with capital providers, deal architects and wealth managers.

To learn how to grow your business faster, stronger and more effectively and begin to make the connections you need. Female entrepreneurs do a lot of things to launch and grow their businesses. They raid their life savings, borrow from friends and family, take loans, and even rely on credit cards. But just one in 100 ends up using venture capital and only two in 100 use private equity. There is clearly a funding gender gap, which we are committed to helping bridge.money day presenters 2
