Dreamers Believers


Women Entrepreneurs and Angel Investors gather to learn from each other. We’re creating more Believers to invest in the Dreamers.

Join us for an event celebrating women entrepreneurs – Dreamers – and those who Believe in them – Angel investors.

StartUpNV, Nevada’s Statewide Business Incubator is bringing these two groups together to create more women angels and to support the journey of female entrepreneurs. Panels will include entrepreneurs discussing the roller-coaster ride that is startup life and the worthiness of the journey. There will be an introduction to angel investing, and we’ll hear from experienced angels on doing valuation of early stage startups and the different types of early financing.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Siliva Mah | “Hidden Bias Held by Both Genders”

Our additional and awesome speakers and panelists include:
Mysty Rusk | Kristin Fox | Amanda Signorelli | Cindy Gatlin | Danell Wilson-Perlman |Marta Spegman-Lopez Venture | Julie Brander | Lauren Klein | Chelli Wolford | Lisa Song Sutton | Annie Emprima-Martin | Maggie Saling is our host | Madeline Feldman is our emcee

The day starts off with continental breakfast and ends with lunch.

Dreamers and Believers

Dreamers are entrepreneurs who want to take their idea and make a business out of it. Believers are angels who believe in them and help with money and acquired knowledge. StartUpNV is trying to create both by bringing them together in this Women’s Forum.
