Event Details

The Description:

On March 22nd-23rd, BlogHer will host our second annual event designed for women who want to start something, whether their goal is to strike out on their own with a brilliant idea, or to bring an entrepreneurial approach to innovation within a company...something often called "intrapreneurism".

The event is called BlogHer Entrepreneurs and is made possible by support from Host Sponsor, Citrix.

Last year's inaugural event was launched in response to the recurring questions: "Where are the women in tech?" and "Where are all the women starting companies?" BlogHer's answer, since 2005 when we launched the first BlogHer Conference, has always been to create the opportunity for women to show up. Show up to learn, connect and advance. Show up to find resources, including one another

The women who attended received in-depth one-on-one mentoring with some of the leading women in technology and media, an experience that was curated by BlogHer to align each attendee with a mentor who could closely align with her interests and learning needs. Through this mentoring and the three rich tracks of programming, attendees received insight into every step of the entrepreneurial process, and also how to be more entrepreneurial and develop more leadership within a larger corporate framework.

Attendees ranged from women beginning to contemplate a leap into the start-up world, to those who were already leading funded start-ups, to women simply hoping to develop skills that would advance their careers to the next level.

The mentors confirmed for 2012 so far are:

  • Advisors and Service Providers for Entrepreneurs. Including Angela Benton, Founder and CEO of NewMe Accelerator, Shaherose Charania, CEO of Women 2.0Kelly Hoey, Founder and Managing Director of Women Innovate Mobile (WIM), and Jen Shelby of Astia  

To learn more about last year's event, please visit our VirtualCon, which has recaps of all the sessions and keynotes. 

We are once again creating a space for 100 ambitious women to attend BlogHer Entrepreneurs to meet 50 role models and mentors...business leaders, entrepreneurs, technologists and top-level service providers.

Attend BlogHer Entrepreneurs and bet on yourself and your big ideas!

BlogHer Entrepreneurs will kick-off with a three-hour intensive workshop on Thursday, March 22, 2012, 2-5PM, designed to help you make the most out of the following day's mentor and networking sessions. The half-day will close with a Welcome Reception.

On Friday March 23, 2012, the conference will continue with your dedicated mentoring session, directed peer networking, and educational and inspiring content from leaders in the industry. 

The Agenda: Hosted by Citrix System at their Santa Clara Executive Briefing Center
