This year’s Massachusetts Women Entrepreneurship Day event will be a combination event featuring:

  • A short investor roundtable discussion on investing in women-founded companies
  • A series of pitches from women entrepreneurs (plus investor feedback)
  • Small group networking and breakout sessions

The event will be held online (via Zoom) on Friday, November 19, 2021 from 7:30 am to 9:00 am (bring your coffee and join us from your desk!) PLEASE RSVP HERE.

Every year for the past 8 years, Mass Innovation Nights has hosted a specific women founders event. Six years ago, it became a joint event with our sister company, Innovation Women. Last year we acquired Lioness Magazine for the Female Entrepreneur, adding another supporting group to the program. Last year (2020) we helped to support and promote the global Women’s Entrepreneurship Day events.
