More about our fundraising goal:
There are more female founded startups in Chicago than any other city on Earth, thanks to the many passionate individuals and communities working hard to provide local women entrepreneurs with the resources and opportunities they need to thrive. Though we are all working with the same mission and goal, our efforts are too silohed, because Chicago's incredible female founders movement has no HQ.
Sparkle and Shine is the beginning of a joint venture between liftUPlift, Women in Business Connect, Brrrilliant Startup Studio and Rebellious Magazine for women, with the goal of creating Chicago's first female founders coworking and collaboration hub by 2018. Together, we will create a central meeting and work space where women entrepreneurs and the organizations that support them can easily join forces, pool their resources, and share crucial knowledge, skills and opportunities for success.
We invite you to be a catalyst for this collaboration and help elevate women entrepreneurs and our entire city!
All are welcome. 21+ years and older.
