5th Annual Women Entrepreneurs Festival

Women Entrepreneurs Festival
Hosted by ITP, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU
January 21 – 22, 2015

This year WE5 focuses on four areas: retail/e-commerce, health and medical, food and hard goods. These areas are ripe for reinvention & disruption; our panelists are doing both. And you’ll learn, through their stories, about the challenges and opportunities in these booming fields.

Where can one big idea lead? For example, could a printed cotton-knit wrap dress change the way women dress and found an empire? Our keynote speaker, Diane von Furstenberg, will talk to us about that.

The goal of the WE Festival has always been to sow the seeds for a community of women entrepreneurs, to expose women who have not yet taken the entrepreneurial leap, the pre-entrepreneurs, to women who have. No one person flew the Spaceship Enterprise, it took a team. As we enter our fifth year of this festival, we know you will find not only a team of extraordinary panelists, but you will meet a whole village of women all aiming to explore the frontier.
