It’s not! While the first day is for black women founders, the second day is open to everyone!
The first two days are geared towards the founders of scalable tech companies with workshops that will help them grow their business into billion dollar companies. The third day is for everyone and highlights the incredible work being done in tech.
You must identify as a black woman and have a scalable company. We have requirements for the first day because the content is refined specifically for people who fit this description and because they will be interacting with investors and media who are looking for these types of founders.
We define scalable as a company where the hours worked doesn’t directly equal the revenue created and full time as 40 hours a week. This typically does not include consulting, agencies, brick and mortar retail or blogs.
If you believe you fit the above requirements, you can purchase a founder’s ticket immediately. We will be reviewing all tickets and if you do not fit the requirements, you will be refunded within a week of purchasing.
After you purchase a founder’s ticket, you will receive a follow up email to apply for these opportunities, which are only available to those attending the conference. You will be contacted closer to the conference if you’ve been chosen for any of these opportunities.
Any tech or scalable company at any stage run by a black women founder is eligible to pitch.
10 finalists will be chosen from the application pool. Finalists will have to attend an online pitch training prior to the event and submit their pitch materials beforehand. On March 1st, finalists will pitch on stage for 3 minutes in front of our judges. Judges will choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and will also allot prizes to all the other finalists.
The only refunds that will be given are for founders who do not fit the proper requirements. Otherwise, there are no refunds on any passes and founder passes are non-transferable.
