Montclair State held three events during Women Entrepreneurship Week. The events ranged from a look at women entrepreneurs in the fashion and beauty industries to a discussion of the future of health care from a tech perspective. The signature event for WEW was an all-day conference held at Montclair State featuring a variety of panels and breakout sessions.

Tired of attending a conference and seeing mostly men on the dais? That never happens at the Women Entrepreneurship Week events held at Montclair State. In the first two years of Women Entrepreneurship Week at Montclair State, all our WEW speakers were women. In 2015, we featured 41 women as keynotes, panelists and workshop leaders, representing a range of industries.
In 2015, Women Entrepreneurship Week was a statewide celebration with 20 universities and nonprofits involved with events all over the Garden State. From Stockton and Rowan in the south, to multiple universities in central and north Jersey, women were celebrated up and down the Turnpike and Parkway.
Everything started in 2014, the first year of Women Entrepreneurship Week. Here is a look back at how the celebration of women entrepreneurs began.
