For the past four years, The Gotham Gal and her friend Nancy Hechinger have been running a conference called The Women’s Entrepreneur Festival. The goal of the conference is to showcase successful women entrepreneurs to other women. As Marian Wright Edelman famously said, “You Can’t Be What You Can’t See.”
But even as The Women’s Entrepreneur Festival gets bigger and bigger each year, it can never scale to reach all women who might want to be an entrepreneur and it certainly can’t reach young girls who might be inspired to become entrepreneurs.
So that’s why I backed Dream, Girl this morning after seeing this Gotham Gal tweet:
Let’s redefine what it means to be a boss & teach girls to dream big by donating to Dream, Girl http://t.co/dUQo6z5884

I hope you’ll be inclined to back this project as well after reading this blog post.
