WE Festival 2016

we festival logoThe sixth annual WE Festival will take place in NYC on April 13th and 14th 2016. The Gotham Gal has built this event into the premier networking and learning event for women entrepreneurs. After five years of doing it in partnership with NYU, she has taken it over and is running it together with her sister Susan. I’ve had a front row seat to this process and I can tell you that they have taken it up a notch. I am confident that this year’s WE Festival will be the best yet.

As usual, the event starts with an evening conversation keynote (Rachael Ray is doing it this year) followed by a networking event. The next day is packed with talks, workshops, and networking events. The theme for this year’s event is Resilience, a great mantra for entrepreneurs of all genders.

If you’ve been to the WE Festival in the past, you will know what a special event it is. If you haven’t been to one before, check out this page for an idea of what the event is like.

The central idea of the WE Festival is showing women entrepreneurs that they aren’t alone and that there are many others just like them, some of them farther along, and some not yet even started. It is, at its core, a celebration of women entrepreneurs, thus the term festival in the name.

Attendance costs $100 if you are a student, $350 if you are a WE Festival alum, and $375 otherwise. If this sounds like something you’d like to attend, you can apply here.
