Women Entrepreneurs Festival

Are you a Pre-Entrepreneur? Thinking of starting a business?
ITP is hosting the first Women Entrepreneur’s Festival at NYU. The Women Entrepreneurs Festival is an extraordinary gathering of outstanding women entrepreneurs and investors (and a few men!) eager to share their knowledge and experiences with other women starting — or on the brink of starting — their own businesses.

Come. Meet. Listen. Join the Conversation.

The goal of ITP’s Women Entrepreneurs Festival is to sow the seeds for a community of women entrepreneurs in NYC, to expose women who have not yet taken the entrepreneurial leap, the pre-entrepreneurs, to women who have.

Festival is limited to 150 participants.

Apply to Attend!
The deadline for application is December 20th. Applicants accepted on a rolling basis.

$200 for General Public
