One of my favorite events with The Pledgettes is our 100 Women Talking Money series. I am very excited that we are bringing this event to Denver Startup Week on Monday, September 14th. To serve the startup community, we’ll tailor our convesration to working in and working on startups. Jenn Uhen will be facilitating this session and BGSD created the content.

More about the 100 Women Talking Money Session at Denver Startup Week:
Women, we know the statistics:
Women receive 7% of venture funds.
Only 25% of women-owned businesses seek business financing.
Denver is the #1 city for women to start a business.
The best way to change the statistics is to talk about money openly. In this interactive session, you’ll have five 1:1 money conversations with other women. We all have something to learn, and we all have something to share.
At the start of each of the money conversations, you’ll be given three conversation starter prompts, and you take it from there. You’ll get to ask questions, share experiences, and go more in-depth with the conversation.
It’s our goal that you will exchange contact information and keep the conversations going beyond the event.
Sample conversation starters include:
What would you do if you earned a $1 million investment?
What were the best investments you made in your business?
How has your money mindset evolved with your startup?
Where do you look for financial advice?
How have you celebrated financial milestones?
What has been your biggest financial fail?
What is your first memory of money?
This is a judgment-free zone. We welcome women wherever they are in their financial journey. We believe everyone has something to learn, and everyone has something to teach. We celebrate starting a money conversation with the same enthusiasm as achieving a big financial goal!
Join us as we meet new friends through financial chats.
