Whether you're currently looking for funding to grow your business, Camp is first and foremost about time out with relevant people to be energised, informed and reinvigorated.

Stepping away from our daily demands and putting a handbrake on the linear thinking and push of execution allows us to do quality, reflective and creative thinking that will fuel ourselves and our plans.

Camps reflects a compelling unique aspect of our community - that it includes women at every stage of the growth spectrum.  It's where we come together across that spectrum to share a relevant conversation about success as a contribution to each other. We run three each year and are included with premium membership.

What you'll always get from Camp

3 times a year our community comes together to contribute to each other and bask in the insights & clarity this forum offers each of us. camps are 100% led by members who willingly step up for one reason: to be a contribution.

  • awareness to recognise the depth of our own internal resources

Camp is a key feature of Women Entrepreneurs Week, which celebrates the diversity of our success. 

We instigated Women Entrepreneurs Week as a vehicle for getting the word out about that diversity as a contribution to women everywhere working on their own success.

In addition to Kick-Off camp, Women Entrepreneurs Week will also include the 2018 inductions to the New Zealand Hall of Fame for Women Entrepreneurs, the release of the new issue of co. magazine, the launch of a new digital how-to series and a national campaign empowering female success.


session 1 = options for funding growth

As business owners we're highly likely to require the support of external options to fund the growth of our business. In the first session we'll explore the options for this so we can build a better understanding of what works best for different types of businesses and the stages of growth they best address.

In this session we'll cover off investor funding, crowd funding and new entrant SheEO.

session 2 = showcase investor pitch

This session features an pitch by founders of two fantastic emerging businesses to a panel of investors.

The investor panel will be facilitated by Co.OfWomen's phenomenal Chair, Theresa Gattung and include Dame Julie Christie, Sharon Hunter, Sarah Paykel and Cecilia Tarrant who heads up the Arc Angels network. 

These demonstration pitches will allow us to see what's involved in an ideal pitch, and experience how investors respond. The pitch and investor response will be followed by a Q&A with founder and investors so we can explore and learn more about this option.

5-7.30pm = 2018 annual hall of fame induction ceremony

The New Zealand Hall Of Fame for Women Entrepreneurs

2018 will see 3 more outstanding women inducted to the New Zealand Hall of Fame for Women Entrepreneurs.

The ceremony is your opportunity to participate in a momentous event, honouring women whose success has paved the way, whose brilliance has changed the way things get done and whose generosity has impacted our world for good.

You can get to know them during the cocktail function that follows.

Karen Walker, Carmel Fisher and Audette Exel were inducted in 2017 - check out the others
