Community Innovation Lab proudly presents the second annual Women's Entrepreneurship Finance Unconference.
It's not your traditional conference. It's an unconference.
Women's Entrepreneurship Finance Unconference
Our unconference is a participant-driven event guided by the belief that what's most needed already exists within our ecosystem of women entrepreneurs, thought-leaders and stakeholders.
We are breaking down barriers to creating real change by giving attendees all the power and redefining who is an expert! This disruptive unconference is an opportunity for women to rewrite their relationships with money and finance through highly interactive sessions, conversations, and experiences.
We believe the most valuable part of any conference is the conversations that happen over coffee between the speakers; help us unconference, and make those "coffee break" moments happen all day long.
Our unconference is your chance to learn from other women entrepreneurs, finance industry experts, government representatives and service providers to openly ask questions, and seek out the answers to what matters most to you.
Build a collaborative network, establish partnerships, and be in a close community with a diverse group of people who share similar values and interests.
Be exposed to the latest ideas and issues, new projects, emerging businesses and tools.
Sessions are proposed by attendees. If there is enough interest in a topic it will be added to the agenda. Propose a session you can lead, or propose a topic for a discussion. The power is in your hands!
Every session will be given a Google document and notetaker, as well as sticky notes, markers and Flipchart paper.
Take responsibility for your own learning! Follow your passion and choose the sessions that interest you – If there are topics you are really interested in that don’t appear on the agenda at first, you need to suggest them.
Use the rule of two feet. If a session isn't right for you, use your two feet and leave. Find another session you want to join.
What does the unconference have in store for you? We are as excited to find out as you!
