The Dallas startup scene is BOOMING and this month LAUNCHDFW, The DEC, Tech Wildcatters and Startup Grind have partnered to produce a day to celebrate female entrepreneurs.  

Jennifer Conley of the organizing team encourages all women to come out to this free event next week, “Whether you’re an aspiring or established entrepreneur, a mompreneur, or a socialpreneur, this program is set up for those who share a common desire to encourage and inspire more women in leadership and founder roles. And while the subject of the event may be about women, we highly encourage men to be part of this conversation too.” 

The organizers are flying in some amazing female entrepreneurs in from all over the country such as Donna Harris and Shauna Causey to give the local community a broader experience.

Investor and StartupMentor Kelly Hoey, also flying in for the event, encourages women, “You can’t wait for opportunity to find you. Tapping into networks, building connections, taking action – that is how you change your career or launch a new venture. These are just a few of the reasons why I’m thrilled to participate in The DEC’s ‘Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs’ event.”

The day will kick off Startup Weekend Women’s Edition May 29th-31st hosted by a few notable Dallas community leaders. Tech Wildcatters VP Clarisa Lindenmeyer encourages all to attend the event as “it seeks to encourage and inspire more female leaders in startup teams and to connect more women to the vast number of resources and mentors available in our startup community.”

The Dallas women’s entrepreneur scene has grown dramatically in the last year with a 98% increase in women owned businesses and earning a top 5 ranking as one of the best cities for women in tech according to a study from RJMetrics. Even major fashion names like Tory Burch are participating in the Dallas ecosystem, opening Elizabeth Street Capital in December 2014 which aims to provide $10 million in loans to women entrepreneurs across the country.
