The FEMPIRE is not another obligation. We’ll never meet in a conference room with coffee and fruit. The FEMPIRE is cocktails and crostini. It’s getting dressed up to go out with your girls, or jumping on a Zoom in your pajamas with a glass of wine.  It’s smart talk among ambitious women with real world experience who want to learn about early stage investing and all that it entails. The FEMPIRE is a night away from your everyday life to hear from topflight entrepreneurs and investors, to learn, to laugh, to make friends, and maybe some money.



… waiting and watching while the world changes is

a waste of your time and talent.



Our Story

It was sometime between getting home from work and getting our kids to bed that we realized the world is changing around us; that the roles and rules that lead fathers and husbands and brothers to success in business were being rewritten by technology, society, and smart, badass women like us.  We told our friends. They felt it too! We knew we had to get involved.  And so, the FEMPIRE was born. 

Our reasons were diverse: a desire to contribute to the female empowerment movement, an interest in understanding the “it factor” of a successful entrepreneur, an ambition to be challenged and learn; a chance to make money, and a serious need to be with friends, drink wine and have a new conversation.  The FEMPIRE embraces and encourages all of that.  We welcome new voices, new members, and the new world we’re helping to make a reality.
