This weekend was the Live Love Thrive Conference and SHE TANK Entrepreneurial Pitch Competition, which took place at the West Hollywood City Council Chambers. SHE TANK is about women helping other women—a competition where female entrepreneurs pitch to a Women’s Investor Panel to receive funding and support. We heard pitches from six women, and top participants won investment funding.
I was also so thrilled to be the recipient of the Trailblazer Award, which my sisters presented to me:
As one of the investors, I was excited to be on a panel with such amazing and strong women, including: Barbara Lazaroff, co-founder of the Wolfgang Puck Brand, philanthropist and global activist; Nicole Ehrlich, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning producer/creator for Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Usher, and more; Senyon Kelly, founder and CEO of Nubian Video Archives & Collectibles; Celia Z. Kahn, founder of New World Business Management; Catherine Curry-Williams, founder of non-profit Shane’s Inspiration to foster a bias-free world for children with disabilities; Eden Sassoon, a trailblazer in the beauty world, founder of Beauty Gives Back, and TV personality on the House Wives of Beverly Hills; and Cat Cora, the first female chef on Iron Chef America.
The next day was the Live Love Thrive Conference at the West Hollywood City Council Chambers, an day of powerful speakers providing insight and life-changing information to inspire women to take the next big leap! It was an all-day conference that included SHE TANK winners and the 360Karma Women Awards, honoring successful women giving back and paying it forward.
It was such a fabulous weekend and I feel so inspired by all the women that I met. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Live Love Thrive Conference!
