Invest In She Finalists Selected

Invest In She Finalists Selected

On Thursday, September 18, six Iowa female entrepreneurs will each take the stage to pitch her growth strategy, competing for a portion of $40,000 in technical support. Some will leave with technical support investments–all will leave with incredible insight into what seasoned investors look for, a larger network of the area’s most influential and market exposure.

Ascent Members submitted applications to present at the entertaining IWLC event, Invest in She. After vetting the applications, Ascent selected six entrepreneurs and are assisting them in preparation for the event. Evaluating and then potentially providing a technical support investment for these businesses, will be a panel of local individuals ranging from private equity investors to CEOs.
