Speakers & Panels Pitch Contests Drink Up & Link Up Women are drivers of the economy, but unfortunately, the economy often fails to fuel them. Did you know that:
-Female founders only receive 2.2% of $130 billion dollars in VC funding
-42% of women report experiencing gender discrimination in business
-Women lack leadership representation, with only 5% of S&P composite’s 1500 leadership positions being filled by women

To top it off, women haven’t had a stable environment specifically dedicated to fostering their entrepreneurial spirit that is both affordable and accessible. Until now!

Enter the Women’s Entrepreneurship Conference—WEC as our supporters know us by. WEC is a series of events put on by parent company Never Too Late To Start that helps women break down entrepreneurial barriers. We achieve this through masterclass events that feature expert speakers and panelists. But let’s be honest, a day dedicated to learning is pretty dry! WEC knows how to throw a party, which is why every attendee is treated to our signature cocktail and networking party. Click through to see everything we have to offer!
Speakers & Panels Pitch Contests Drink Up & Link Up There's nothing quite like learning about business from women who reflect your journey. At WEC, treat yourself to renowned business experts who will break down all the fundamentals for you in starting your business. In prior events, this has included:

-Health & wellness
...And more! Our highly curated speakers will stop at nothing to leave you feeling empowered and inspired to start or grow your business.
Speakers Pitch Competitions Drink Up & Link Up If there's one thing a business needs besides a strong female leader, it's money . In fact, the average startup needs $10,000 to get off the ground. In partnership with our sister-company, 30 Second Pitch™, WEC has hosted two game-changing pitch competitions, each with a prize pool in excess of $10,000. Make sure to check back on this site for when we announce our next pitch competitions! In the meantime, check out 30 Second Pitch™ to get a head start on VC funding for your business!

Women's Entrepreneurship Conference 3 Conferences & Counting
We're expecting YOU at our next!
Our mission is to prove that no matter where a woman is at in her life, it’s never too late for her to start or grow her business.

Never Too Late To Start is revolutionizing business events. Gone are the days of stuffy “events” with mandated dress-codes, long, drawn out speeches, little to no time to mingle at ticket prices that assume your business must be making money already! We pride ourselves in being the exact opposite. Affordable events. Interesting, relevant, and renowned speakers. And actual time to PARTY.
Our first project was the Women's Entrepreneurship Conference (WEC) in November 2018, and it was very clear by its overwhelming success that we had recognized and started a much-needed movement. There was a huge demand to make WEC an annual or even semi-annual event to keep the momentum building. Through a series of entrepreneurship conferences and events, Never Too Late to Start continues to make an impact, by providing valuable advice from experienced speakers and panelists, access to funding, numerous opportunities for networking, and a chance to feel connected, supported and inspired. In addition to all this, each event takes place in a vibrant location, with a fun, familiar and social atmosphere including food, drinks and a variety of complimentary services, giving Never Too Late to Start a superior and quality edge that is welcomed and appreciated by entrepreneurs.
Never Too Late to Start acknowledges that with age comes many significant advantages when starting a new business, one of which is a commitment to making your passion not only a financial win, but your legacy. Our mission is to help all entrepreneurs, at any stage and at any age. And if you are 45 or older it's not too late at all. It's actually the perfect time.
