WeROC Idaho (Women Entrepreneurs Realizing Opportunities for Capital)

April 27, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm MDT

WeROC provides leadership, insights, tools, and strategies to address today’s challenges and opportunities for Idaho leaders to succeed.

WeROC’s purpose is to create new opportunities for women (and men) leaders to thrive and provide investors with real-time deal flow. Utilizing the network of investors and stakeholders, entrepreneurs can receive help in obtaining human and investment capital. Mentors within the entrepreneurial ecosystem provide guidance, strategy, and leadership to help take the business and talent to the next level now and into the future.

The theme for the first-ever WeROC Conference in Idaho is Create, Actualize, and Launch. WeROC is a place to bring new ideas, build a vision and plan, and ultimately launch them into reality.

Join us in welcoming eight women-led high-potential startups to the stage! These female-led companies seek global impact while rooted in Idaho. Hear pitches highlighting challenges, innovations, goals, disruptive technologies, and business models. Learn about capital, how to pitch more effectively, and learn directly from investors what they want to hear in a pitch.

Come together to uplift Idaho’s ecosystem to thrive in an exciting and diverse climate and attend WeROC to build new relationships, be part of the solution of increasing access to capital and help local companies grow and succeed.
