Create brave spaces that inspire change and meaningful connections

SVIW (Social Venture Institute Women) is a three-day, online gathering of mission-driven, change-creating, women-identifying CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors.

SVIW breaks through the usual barriers of business conferences. There are no pretenses here – this is an open and trusting space. This artfully-facilitated gathering offers problem-solving, experiential learning, skill-sharing and powerful conversation. It is an invitation to find the balance, insights and resources you need to propel your mission forward.

Peer-learning + real connection

Entrepreneurship can feel isolating, especially in this unsettled world. The magic of SVIW is in the people you meet and the space that is curated intentionally.

This is an inclusive cross-generational, cross-cultural, cross-sectorial gathering, designed to generate insights and real connection. You’ll tap into the wisdom of diverse business minds and hearts through our peer-learning model.

This gathering addresses the specific needs of women-identifying leaders including Black, Indigenous, Queer, Latinx and all change-driven people. We go deep, holding space for the evolution that is needed to fulfill your mission. Come as you are. Expect the unexpected. 

“The warm, inclusive and professional culture of the work done at SVIW, whether at an in-person or fully virtual conference breeds a ground ripe for personal and professional development. I learned so much about myself, tangible next steps in my professional life and a deep community of support!”  – SVIW Virtual Participant
