Female Innovator Games™
This female focused Innovator Games, hosted at College of Charleston, will kick-off the “Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs” Summit hosted on Pitch Day at College of Charleston’s Sottile Theater on March 18th. While most of our Innovator Games are co-ed, we have tailored this event to be female only to address the gender gap. The Summit will include some of the most-accomplished businesswomen and educators such as Anita Zucker, CEO of the InterTech Group and more. In addition, corporate sponsors will be provided the opportunity to participate as team mentors, zone branding as well as an opportunity to receive a seat as a judge.
Our investors participating as judges in the final pitches will be provided by Think Ideally and other investors in order to provide potential seed funding for winning concepts. In addition, winning teams will be given the opportunity to continue development through Think Ideally Entrepreneur Fast Track Programs as well as the Incubation Program.
McKinsey estimates “$12 trillion could be added to global GDP by 2025 by advancing women’s equality.”
