Event Details


The United Women in Business Foundation Presents:

Girl Boss Speed Networking

“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of of other successful women that have her back.” This is something the United Women in Business believes to our core. Join us for an intimate speed networking event to connect with other girl bosses in NYC. This isnt like other speed networking events - we will work with you to craft your 30 second “elevator pitch”, then will start round robin style speed networking (5 minutes per pair) so you can put your new skills to the test! Dont forget to pack your business cards and bring a few resumes along!

Date, Time and Location:
  • Date: Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Location TBD - We are currently in the final stages of securing our event partnership!

Attendees will:
  • Learn how to craft their own 30 second “elevator pitch”
  • Network with other young professionals in the local community from different industries
  • Walk away with new professional connections and hopefully new friends



  • Sign-in / Refreshments – 6:30PM - 6:45PM
  • Introductory Remarks + Elevator Pitch Workshop – 6:45PM - 7:15PM
  • Speed Networking  – 7:15PM - 8:15PM
  • Event Conclusion / Networking – 8:15PM - 8:30PM

Room Setup:
  • In an effort to keep this event intimate, we are opening this up to 30 members.
  • We will have 15 networking spots throughout the room (tables, desks, or chairs pushed together)
  • Members will either get a number or a letter upon arrival. Numbers will stay in the same seat through the event and the letters will shift. After the speed networking portion, there will be time for open networking so that numbers can connect with other numbers and letters can connect with other letters.

NOTE: This event is open to UWIB Members only. [Not a member? Fill out our 5-minute sign-up form here. Membership is free and you can opt-out at any time!]
