WeROC® Program Offerings​

Each of the female founders in the Kinect WeROC Program will get exclusive guidance on raising capital and assistance on how to pitch their business to investors and other capital providers through these three main program offerings.

If you are a female CEO, founder or co-founder, and are approaching a scaling point in your business, it’s time to prepare for your capital raise. Kinect Capital offers a free mentoring program for women founders and CEOs to work on their capital raising pitch and strategic approach. Our CEO-focused mentoring program is a unique, private, and safe way to learn about speaking to investors, banks, and foundations.

The Kinect mentoring program lasts up to 8 weeks. It includes a structured weekly 1-hour mentoring session where a Mentor Lead and a Mentor Liaison (one of our interns!) work together to organize your investment presentation and gather feedback from a group of experienced and diverse experts who will serve as your dedicated mentors.

At the end of the mentoring sessions, you will have the opportunity to pitch your business at a Kinect Forum–a pitch event structured to provide constructive feedback, where investors and capital providers listen to the proposition and respond to the pitch and capital raising approach. 

Finally, those who graduate from the Mentoring program and Forum will go on to pitch at the WeROC event in front of hundreds of capital providers and influencers.

A memorable experience during the WeROC mentoring journey is the Kinect Forum. Women CEOs and founders present their pitches to a panel of active angel investors, venture investors, bankers, and other capital providers.

These expert panels offer honest and direct feedback, aiding startup leaders in fine-tuning their presentations to pursue successful fundraising.

The Kinect Forum is accessible both in-person and online, allowing others to observe and learn. This event remains private, exclusively for CEOs and Mentors to attend.

Kinect WeROC Conference stands as an inspirational annual gathering featuring passionate keynote speakers and panelists who’ve braved the challenging terrain of limited access to capital and other obstacles that women-led or founded ventures often encounter.

Kinect WeROC brings together both women and men launching startups, the influencers weaving change, and investors, financing groups, and capital providers who are driven by a vision to back women-led enterprises. It serves as an inspiration event to women entrepreneurs, helping them to clear the barriers preventing them from achieving the capital they need to scale their businesses. By joining this collective endeavor, we not only nurture dreams but also cultivate a thriving community where supporting women entrepreneurs is the catalyst for creating a world where equality, innovation, and empowerment flourish.
