Our Summit

Annual women's entrepreneurship conference connecting Boston students and innovators.

What is Summit?

The WISE Summit is a women’s entrepreneurship conference open to all disciplines and backgrounds. It was created to foster community among women beyond Northeastern University and across Boston who are interested in developing an innovative mindset. The WISE Summit strives to highlight unconventional paths to entrepreneurship and make entrepreneurship accessible to more women.

Stronger Together

In October 2019, WISE invited women from colleges all over Boston to attend an event to learn from each other and grow with one another. In addition to keynote speeches and lightning talks from female founders, attendees took part in workshop breakout sessions varying across interdisciplinary topics. We had over 300+ attendees and speakers from Google, Adobe, IBM, and more.

Being able to gather such an incredible group of mission-driven people all together for our first Summit was an amazing experience. WISE looks forward to a time where we can gather in-person again but will be hosting two virtual Keynote events on February 13th and March 6th!
