An event built by women, for women.
Funding Summit is here to support female founders on their journey of building, growing, and funding their companies. Invaluable advice and lessons learned will be shared by successful entrepreneurs and investors who are now leading, shaping, and funding the future - starting with women. Join us for 3-hours of content and networking opportunities with fellow female founders from your community.
Funding Summit is presented with Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs.

LIFT Labs helps elevate startups through programming, mentorship from Comcast NBCUniversal leaders and partners, and educational resources designed to help entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses.
