The Forum for Women Entrepreneurs (“FWE”) is hosting Pitch for the Purse™ to address a key concern facing women entrepreneurs: access to capital. The program is divided into four sections designed to educate and mentor every step of the way: Pitch Training, Semi-Finals, Mentorship + the Pitch Finale.

You might need $1M to grow your business, or $150,000. What matters is that you want to grow your business, and need help to craft your pitch. That’s where FWE comes in.
