- About SheWorx
SheWorx is the leading global platform and event series empowering 20,000+ female entrepreneurs to build and scale successful companies. We're closing the funding gap by democratizing access to top mentors and investors. Founded by Lisa Wang (@lisaworx), SheWorx has differentiated itself as a leader in driving the movement for gender parity in entrepreneurship.
Lisa Wang is a former 4x USA National Champion and USA Hall of Fame Gymnast, and the Founder & CEO of SheWorx. As a gymnast, she grew up in an environment of zero sum mentalities. ‘I win, you lose,’ only one gold medal. In contrast, SheWorx, thrives on collaboration, not competition. She is driving the movement for gender parity in funding and championing a new model of empathetic leadership. Lisa is a columnist for Forbes and has been a keynote speaker at top conferences including the World Entrepreneur Forum, CES, IBM Think Leaders, and more. Previously, Lisa founded a food tech company incubated in the top food innovation accelerator Food-X. She started her career as a Hedge fund analyst on Wall Street. Lisa is a graduate of Yale University. Lisa's advice to other women? "There will always be critics, naysayers, doubters. Pay them no mind. What does success look and feel like to you? Formulate your vision, stick to your values, own your strengths, surround yourself with good people, and charge forward with all of the energy and tenacity required to turn your dreams into reality. The rest is simply noise.
SheWorx is committed to creating parity in the entrepreneurial ecosystem by connecting women with mentors, advisors, investors, and building the pipeline for future talent. The SheWorx Foundation 501(c)(3) provides entrepreneurial education to empower high school and college girls to gain the skills and mindset to redefine leadership.
SheWorx is creating strong local ecosystems where more women are launching new ideas, obtaining funding, and growing sustainable companies. We are the go-to resource for ambitious women throughout their entrepreneurial journey - whether they are at the beginning stages of creating their company or if they have already raised multiple rounds funding. We're building a community of ambitious female entrepreneurs and their supporters to accelerate the knowledge, network, and capabilities of entrepreneurs and changemakers who will define the next wave of leadership.
