Last month, 150 women assembled at the Microsoft Technology Center in New York City for the inaugural Million Dollar Women Summit. During the two-day event, entrepreneurs, investors and corporations from around the globe came together to discuss important issues facing women in business, including access to capital and closing gender pay gaps.
The summit is an outcome of the Million Dollar Women movement created by Julia Pimsleur, author of the award-winning book, Million Dollar Women, speaker, coach and founder of Little Pim, one of the few women-run businesses backed by venture capital in the country. At the heart of the movement is its mission: to get one million women – or 13 percent of women entrepreneurs – to $1 million in revenues by 2020.
With events like the summit, its growing online community, and educational resources, such as the four-month Million Dollar Women Masterclass course, the movement is well on its way to reaching this goal.
