Organized by the Holmes Center and led by a committed group of women entrepreneurs and investors, WE* is focused on supporting scalable, women-led startups in Minnesota through a series of conferences and events.
WE* has developed annual conferences targeting startups and corporate/academic innovators, in addition to informal events throughout the year that highlight leading women entrepreneurs and bring the community together. We are seeking to highlight resources to support scalable women-led startups in Minnesota, with a goal of encouraging more women to develop big ideas, gain access to the incredible resources right here in Minnesota, and ultimately raise capital to grow their businesses.
