Description

Break the Roles: A World Class Opportunity

Have you heard the news? In Silicon Valley and beyond, there is a gender parity problem and according to sources such as Forbes and the McKinsey Global Report, the solution is worth trillions.

At Break the Roles startup pitch competition, brilliant and accomplished female founders take the challenge to present their startup vision before a panel of investors. After question and answer sessions and deliberation, only one startup takes the prize. Break the Roles advances gender equality by supporting female entrepreneurship and investing in the community. Female founders across a wide variety of sectors are encouraged to participate. If you are a female founder interested in pitching or an investor interested in judging at this upcoming event, apply today at breaktheroles.com


Each Break the Roles event benefits an organization dedicated to advancing women in STEM and leadership positions. Past events, for example, benefited Notre Dame HS Girls Robotics Team and Girls Garage (for more info. visit breaktheroles.com). All proceeds from ticket sales for the Oct. 16th event will benefit SV Women Who Code. Thanks for being a champion for women and girls- YOU ARE A HERO!
