An in-person and live-streamed event to support the rise of feminine leadership and entrepreneurism in today's tech-savvy world.

Emerging Women Live, October 10-13, 2013, Boulder, CO

THE EVENT

With feminine power on the rise, many women are feeling called to create a new kind of work life - one where we can be fully expressed and supported in our lifestyle choices. With technology made more accessible every day, the barriers to starting and growing a business are shrinking, and many women are choosing entrepreneurship as a path to a career of meaning and purpose, creative expression, and financial success. Other women in leadership or executive positions are using this paradigm shift to influence change in "the how" of doing business within companies or organizations.

Emerging Women Live aims to support and propel this emerging movement by helping women to harness the power of the feminine, kick ass in business, and create a new paradigm for success.

Participants will:

1)  Learn practical methods and tools for starting and growing a business 

2)  Discover the power of vulnerability, self-compassion, and being REAL as a leader

3)  Find the courage and inspiration needed to take their worklife to the next level 

4)  Navigate the complexities of online marketing, crowdfunding, cash flow, and more 

5)  Connect with their vitality and sensuality and discover the power of feminine expression 

6)  Make new friends and circles that will support them as an entrepreneurs, leaders, and creators 

THE PRESENTERS

Elizabeth Gilbert, Brené Brown, Eve Ensler, Alanis Morissette, Ani DiFranco, Tami Simon, Kelly McGonigal, Tara Mohr, Christine Kane, Jennifer Lee and more!

HOW THIS CAMPAIGN WILL HELP

Our goal is to make this event available to as many people as possible through a free live stream to global markets, so that we can reach the people who may not have the means to attend the live event in person. This campaign will help to fund the AV and streaming costs to make this happen.

In addition, we are raising funds to support our website design and build, and all of the marketing efforts needed to reach as wide an audience - both for the in-person and streamed attendance - as possible.  These costs will cover promotional videos, podcasts and digital download freebies, in addition to marketing images, design, and advertising.

Finally, for those that attend in-person, we are focused on creating ways to encourage networking and real connection between the participants, the speakers, and the sponsor/partners.  We aim to create an event where corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives, and members from technology, business and other sectors of society can mingle together and partner on creating this new paradigm for success.  Contributions to this campaign will help us create those networking opportunities by helping us fund venue costs for additional break-out rooms, general overhead, meals, and receptions.

FOUNDER AND HOST

For over ten years, Chantal served as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Sounds True, a multimedia publishing company focused on spirituality, personal growth, and holistic living.  In her last year at Sounds True, Chantal spearheaded the successful launch of the Wake Up Festival, Sounds True’s first annual national event with over 25 speakers and 800 attendees.  Shortly after, in September 2012, she founded Emerging Women and Emerging Women Live.  In 2002, after graduating with an MBA from the University of Colorado, Chantal left a 4-year career in the medical devices  industry in search of work that would amplify her dedication to inner transformation and her passion for ideas.  She continues to support the integration of consciousness and business through Emerging Women.  Chantal’s ultimate vision is to weave feminine leadership and authenticity into businesses, and to create a world where women have a strong voice in the shaping of our future.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Our primary marketing strategy is to reach potential participants through partnership and "in-kind" online promotions and emails. If we are trending behind our goal (given our line-up and the momentum of this movement, we are not expecting this!), we will start by asking our presenters to market the event more heavily through their social media channels and their websites. We will also create more give-away freebies for our marketing partners to entice more people to check out our website. We will also consider some strategic and niche market-focused discounting.
