The Women’s Capital Series
In Knoxville, like many cities across the US, we continue to see a lack of women investors in the start-up and small business space and a lack of funding going towards women-owned businesses. Let’s work together this summer to bring more women investors to the table and increase funding for women-owned businesses!
These sessions are open to ANY WOMAN who is curious about what it takes to become an investor or are needing to raise funds to grow their business. The series will include monthly sessions from June until August with a Happy Hour in September to bring us all together during Innov865 Week!
Note: We will release registrations for each month’s sessions separately on Eventbrite.
