*Photo above: Entrepinays doin the damn thing that inspire me! 

2 years ago, I was inspired by a panel I presented on at the Fly Pinays Conference (yes, it’s a thing!) called “Entrepinayship” where they featured 5 amazing pinay entrepreneurs sharing their story. As a new female entrepreneur who only had a few women of color entrepreneur mentors to look up to, I LOVED the concept and wanted to spread the term #ENTREPINAY far and wide to unite us and create an online community.

Over the past year, I’ve worked on putting together what I feel like is a SUPER POWER PINAY CREW of a planning committee to make this dream come to life. What is this dream? It’s the FIRST ever Entrepinays Summit, and it’s happening October 7, 2018 in San Francisco!

I’m even more juiced to announce that we’ve locked in our first official event partnerhuge shout out and thanks to Covo, a beautiful co-working community where I have been working for over a year and just recently became an official member at. Run by a husband/wife duo + brother, Covo is truly a family business, and it feels that way every day I come to work. For all Entrepinays Summit attendees, there may be a surprise sweet membership offer from Covo the day of the event 😉

What is the Entrepinays Summit?

A daylong gathering of Bay Area pinay entrepreneurs filled with panels, interactive workshops, mentoring, and meaningful connections.

Who is it for?

1) Self-identified Filipina/Pinay entrepreneurs who own a business in the Bay Area or beyond (or are preparing to start a business)
2) Pinays who want to learn, teach, actively build, and connect with other Entrepinays
