The 2021 Girl's Entrepreneurship Summit inspires young women to become entrepreneurs by taking their business ideas and making them a reality.
The 2021 Pi515 Girls Entrepreneurship Summit inspired young women to become entrepreneurs by taking their business ideas and making them a reality. At Pi515 we believe students succeed with opportunity, and we wanted to provide support and mentorship to young women ages 11-22 years old to take their business ideas and make them a reality. The virtual summit took place over six weeks and featured many talented speakers and mentors including:
This talented group of people took our young women from the brainstorming and idea stage to completing a final business pitch to compete for funding for their ventures. Thanks to our generous sponsors Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Royal Neighbors of America, The John Pappajohn Centers and John Pappajohn we were able to award funding directly to our young entrepreneurs. We are so excited to continue to follow them on their journeys and see where their businesses take them!
