  • Davis Wright Tremaine LLP announced that the Women Entrepreneurs Boot Camp (WEB) is expanding to the West Coast and is calling for Seattle cohort applicants

The Women Entrepreneurs Boot Camp (WEB) — which is created by Davis Wright Tremaine LLP to provide women founders with tools for success — announced it is expanding to the West Coast and released a call for applicants to be part of the first Seattle WEB cohort. Women founders are being invited to apply to WEB by January 10.

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is a national law firm with over 550 lawyers representing clients based throughout the United States and around the world. And WEB is a program of Davis Wright Tremaine’s Project W, a multifaceted firmwide initiative that seeks to provide women entrepreneurs the tools, connections, and expertise necessary to build successful businesses.

The selected applicants will be spending February 10 at Davis Wright Tremaine’s Seattle offices with VCs, business executives, and other experts who will provide insights, feedback, and skill-building that founders need to get from seed to Series A.

“WEB has a demonstrated track record of impact and outcomes and has graduated four impressive cohorts through its programs in New York,” said Davis Wright Tremaine LLP partner in charge Lynn Loacker — who established and oversees WEB. “We’re looking to amplify those results by bringing WEB to Seattle as we continue to help female founders across the country scale their businesses to get Series A-ready.”

Over 75 companies from 15 industries and 18 cities have already participated in WEB.

“This was an incredible opportunity to learn how fellow founders articulate their value and confront challenges… The amazing energy and supportive atmosphere made me feel more confident about continuing our momentum,” explained Motivote co-founder and CEO Jess Riegel (WEB participant).

FINDMINE CEO and founder Michelle Bacharach pointed out that WEB had actionable insights for how to combat bias that female CEOs face when raising capital.

“Thanks to WEB for curating a phenomenal line-up. I can’t say enough great things about my experience and strongly recommend the program to every female startup founder” commented SixPlus co-founder and CEO Evelyne White.

Space in the Raw CEO and co-founder Christina Rene emphasized that the creators of WEB have approached their programming by truly thinking of the entrepreneur first.

“Everything you really need to get from Seed to Series A, all rolled into one day—and an incredible opportunity to meet a powerhouse tribe of female founders who are all dealing with the same growing pains as you,” commented SEEVA Technologies founder and CEO Diane Lansinger.

The participants in the WEB 2020 program in Seattle will learn how to redefine their go-to-market strategy, optimize distribution channels, and build strategic partnerships.

Plus they will hear from an accomplished founder and Series A investor about their shared journey in the fundraising process and beyond.

And the participants will also gain insights into how Series A investors evaluate a potential investment and the metrics that are key to demonstrating high growth potential.
