June 9, 2023 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Women Investing in Women: The Firehood Effect

Ignite your journey with The Firehood! Join us for a breakfast event featuring angel investors and women in tech and entrepreneurship.

Join us for an exciting event, hosted by Edmonton Unlimited x The Firehood. Join Edmonton Unlimited for an inspiring breakfast event on June 9th from 9-11am. Born from the idea that women investing in women can make a powerful impact, The Firehood is a nationwide movement striving to break down barriers for women in tech and entrepreneurship. Since its inception in 2021, the Firehood has over 100 members and invested over $2M in 10 startups from Vancouver to Newfoundland.

Founded by Claudette McGowan and Danielle Graham in 2021, The Firehood addresses the challenges women in Canada face when starting, growing, and scaling businesses around access to networks, training, leadership opportunities, and capital – the four key elements often out of reach.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, investor, tech professional, or just keen on supporting women in the tech ecosystem, this gathering is for you. Participate in rich networking opportunities, gain access to mentorship, build your leadership acumen through specialized training, and increase your personal prosperity in the tech industry.

While we focus on amplifying women’s voices, this event is open to all who share our vision. More exciting details to come.
