Pitch for the Purse
About Pitch for the Purse
You might need $1M to grow your business, or $150,000. What matters is that you want to grow your business, and need help to craft your pitch. That’s where we come in. FWE has designed Pitch for the Purse to address a key concern facing women entrepreneurs…access to capital. The program is divided into four sections designed to educate and mentor every step of the way: Pitch Training, Semi-Finals, Mentorship + Pitch Finale. FWE is excited to bring Pitch for the Purse back following an incredibly successful debut year. This program is open to women entrepreneurs in Canada.
