Founders and Funding

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the biggest decisions entrepreneurs face when building their business is where and when to raise funding. SheWorx is partnering with TechWeek to host an evening panel highlighting female entrepreneurs that have raised money from different funding sources and are at varying stages of growth. The event will include a Q&A and time to connect with other attendees following the moderated panel.

Transportation & Parking: Due to college classes, the Broad Stage will not have public parking availability during the Growth Summit. Techweek highly encourages taking advantage of rideshare in order to get to the Broad Stage.

Additional parking is available 3 blocks west at the Santa Monica Public Library at 7th Street and Santa Monica Boulevard.  There is a $10 day rate to park in the lot.

To drive directly to the Library, exit the I-10 West at Lincoln Blvd. and turn right. Proceed north to Santa Monica Blvd. and turn left. Proceed west to 7th Street and turn right, then turn left into the library parking structure. 

Parking meters are also available on Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard and Broadway. 

Please do not park on residential streets, as they are in preferential parking zones, and any cars without the appropriate pass may be towed.
