About this Event

Hey Canada, the Pitch is back! The Forum for Women Entrepreneurs is hosting the 5th annual Pitch for the Purse Semi-Finals and we want you to join us on Tuesday, December 1st live in the virtual world.

  • Hear women entrepreneurs share their business visions
  • Meet the Community Panel and Vision Coaches who have supported them on this leg of their journey
  • Cheer them on as they pitch for a spot in the Pitch for the Purse Finale and the chance to win $50,000

With 466 applications this year, it was no easy feat, but the Community Panel selected the 12 Semi-Finalists you will hear from on December 1.

One perk of being virtual is there are no capacity limits, and you can join us from wherever you happen to be! Virtually gather your team for an inspiring team activity, or take out your notebook and capture learnings you can apply to your own business.


12:00pm - 2pm PST:

West Coast friends, this is your lunchtime masterclass.
