Doyenne hosts our 5x5x5 at entrepreneurial festivals taking place in cities where we operate. These events are unlike other pitch events you've attended. Our events highlight women-led ventures from ALL business sectors, from initial launch through early growth stages, have a focus on community impact, and are innovative within their industries.
Many of the companies who have won the 5x5x5 event are able to use the funds awarded to take the next leap towards success, and/or position the company for initial investment opportunities.
All companies who are selected to present go through peer coaching pitch practices to formulate their venture's pitch and story. The relationships created through coaching sessions have been said to be "more impactful than actually winning the grant" by prior 5x5x5 competitors.
Applications are taken through the button below in a ongoing process, but are reviewed for the city in which you are applying for based on the deadline date stated in the Timeline & Requirements section on this page. Your application does not roll over to another city's event and you must register for each event you wish to be considered for presenting at.
