BlogHer Entrepreneurs Conference

If you’re a woman who has a big idea that involves technology, the internet or social media, BlogHer is bringing back a unique opportunity!

Last year, I attended the first BlogHer Entrepreneurs conference and had the experience of a lifetime!  Now, I want YOU to attend the second BlogHer Entrepreneurs conference!

The BlogHer Entrepreneurs Conference focuses on business, entrepreneurism and technology. The conference is limited to 100 attendees and is joined by 50 pioneering entrepreneurs, technologists and business leaders, for a day and a half of intensive learning, one-on-one mentorship and high quality networking.

The conference will take place on March 22-23, 2012 at the Citrix Executive Briefing Center in Santa Clara, CA.  Read Lisa’s post from late last year, introducing the inaugural conference.

 

This conference is unique and powerful like no other, for the following reasons:

  • It is an intimate gathering of powerful women from diverse backgrounds, talents and experience.
  • It is a unique opportunity to receive a one-on-one hour of mentorship with a successful entrepreneur.
  • Your business idea or area is carefully matched to a mentor who can help you brainstorm and bring your business to the next level.
  • It is a powerhouse of inspiring, creative, smart and successful women!
  • You will leave the conference armed with creative ideas, tools, resources and a new network of entrepreneur women.

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, or you’re trying to set up shop, or wish to expand your current business, this is the conference for you!  It will change the way you think about business and entrepreneurship.

Who Should Attend and What You Need to Make the Most of It

Here’s what you need to attend:

(1) An idea. Or a fledgling business. Or both.
We invite you to attend if you have a big idea and need encouragement to build it into a business. We invite you if you already have your seed or angel funding and want to take it to the next level. We invite you if you want to lead an innovative new program or initiative at your company. Are you anywhere in between? Great — join us!

(2) Do your homework.
This year we will be focused on providing more informational resources as we get closer to the event, a path to follow to make the most of the conference. Generate talking points about your idea, concept or business. Bring a full-blown pitch deck or business plan, if you have one. And if you don’t have one, you have until March 22, and we’ll be there to help.

(3) Invite men from venture capital, technology, business and entrepreneurship
One final point, so as to be explicit: Men are absolutely and enthusiastically invited to attend this event. Lisa, Jory and I have met dozens of men in the industry — from VCs to engineers — who openly seek our advice on how and where to recruit women for their start-ups and businesses, and who contribute thoughtfully to the discussion about women in tech. So yes indeed, we invite men interested in funding, hiring or advancing entrepreneurial women to please join us. And if you know women who would benefit from this event, contact Kristin Auger about sponsoring a table of them!
