“Women are the geniuses behind so many innovative and creative business ideas. Own It Ventures is an excellent resource to help women entrepreneurs launch those initiatives. The upcoming Roadshow in particular will be an excellent venue for learning the tips and tricks to mastering the art of successful business pitching. In my many years of involvement with Own It Ventures, it has been my privilege to watch numerous women entrepreneurs come to the Roadshow and the Own it Venture's annual conference and walk away with the keys to positioning their business concept for success. In today’s competitive entrepreneurial marketplace, business owners need all the help they can get and I recommend the programs provided by Own It Ventures to get prepped for success.”

Jodi Brooks> Doggie Day Care Owner, May 1, 2010 Sharkette Tank Winner"When I attended the Own It Ventures event, my intentions were to gain some experience from other women in business and pitch to investors. My experience went far beyond expectations. This is "the" event to attend whether you are looking to build relationships, network, receive an education or motivation. In my experience, I had never been around so many women, wanting to see other women do well. You just walk away from the event feeling great!”
Shan Massucco> CEO/Founder, So Healthy And Natural, "I had the opportunity to attend the first Own It Ventures in October 2009 and pitch to the media room and make it into the "Sharkette Tank". I have attended many events that promise to educate and be the answer to helping small businesses and entrepreneurs, but none have come close to comparing to the Own It Ventures Expose'. From the beginning of the day all the way to the end, the event is jam packed with resources and businesses to help you grow your business. Not only did I make some key connections, Melissa, the founder, opened up her contact list to help me and many others out. The old saying "it's who you know" applies and they deliver! She genuinely want women to succeed in their businesses. It is an atmosphere of women helping women. I highly recommend attending this Event."
