WeROC Salt Lake City 2020 to Focus on the Startup Fundraising Experience From Women Entrepreneurs Who Have Successfully Raised Capital

SALT LAKE CITY — August 6th, 2020 — VentureCapital.Org, a Utah-based non-profit organization that assists, coaches and mentors entrepreneurs who are interested in raising investment capital, announced the theme of its WeROC Salt Lake City 2020 business conference. This year, WeROC — Women Entrepreneurs Realizing Opportunities for Capital —  will examine and share the successful experiences and strategies employed by women entrepreneurs who have already successfully raised Series A or Series B rounds of funding. In its fourth year, WeROC brings actionable insights, success stories and the tools women need to successfully secure investment capital.  WeROC Salt Lake City 2020 is slated for September 30th from 8:00 am MT – 5:30 pm MT. Ensuring high participation by women entrepreneurs and the supporting community while protecting every individual’s personal health, WeROC will take place both virtually and in-person, opening up participation to a national audience for the first time.

VentureCapital.Org is the nation’s first non-profit dedicated to helping entrepreneurs find funding to accelerate their growth.  We are committed to providing the highest-quality educational and mentoring programs to best serve today’s entrepreneurs—especially those in underserved communities, including women, minorities and veterans,” said Trent Christensen, President & CEO of VentureCapital.Org.  “And just like these entrepreneurs, we are evolving to match the challenges of our time, including hosting simultaneously in-person and virtual events designed to preserve our community’s health and safety while expanding their knowledge and network.  We are especially proud and excited to launch this format at WeROC 2020, with the goal of creating our biggest reach and impact yet for a single program.”

“Startups led by women outperform their male counterparts by a wide margin when you look at revenue generation and investor returns.” Said Kathy Ricci, WeROC Conference Chair. She continued “Investing in women is not only good for business but also has a huge impact in creating new, high paying jobs and overall quality of life for women business owners and their employees. WeROC seeks to promote that knowledge and increase access to capital for women globally.”
