The Women’s Venture Capital Summit is a dynamic, two-day conference designed to forge valuable relationships between senior-level women in venture capital.

Spun out from our highly-regarded Women's Private Equity Summit, and taking place at the truly special Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, the event will continue our tradition of creating exclusive, retreat-style gatherings that are conducive to candid discussion, meaningful connections and helping women in investment reach their full potential.

With soaring valuations, record IPOs, and increased interest from allocators in venture capital, we felt that the time was right to create a new, dedicated event to provide insight into the specific opportunities and challenges that seed, early-stage and growth investing present, as well as enabling more relevant introductions to the limited and general partners who will be pivotal to your long-term success in this distinct asset class.

At the heart of the Women's Venture Capital Summit will be a carefully curated audience of 300 attendees, representing LPs who are actively looking to invest in venture, GPs from both emerging and established VC funds, and relevant industry advisors.
