The WOCCON Summit is an invitation-only convening for investors, allies, and policymakers who want to deepen their understanding of the problems with the system that continues to keep women of color entrepreneurs locked out. The Summit will share stories about the unique entrepreneurial journey of women of color, facilitate honest conversations about allyship, and propose solutions that can lead to systemic change.


Our goal is to help attendees find a path to taking action to create a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem.  View WOCCON 2023 Agenda

Who Should Attend WOCCON 2024?

  • Thought leaders, policy-makers, and members from the ally and investor communities

  • Advocates for women of color ready to make a difference


Capital constraints continue to be a defining problem for the majority of women of color entrepreneurs. We are attacking this problem from a different angle by engaging the vast IFEL network to use their expertise and relationships to get more women of color on the grow-scale-exit trajectory to building wealth through entrepreneurship.
