Last weekend, nearly 200 women and men gathered for the Women Entrepreneurs (WE) Festival at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The event was hosted by the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), a graduate-level program in alternative media encouraging creative innovations in communications technologies.
With the goal of fostering a community of established and aspiring female entrepreneurs, conference attendees explored creative solutions to the unique challenges facing women in business and technology while celebrating the achievements of those women.
Venture capitalists as well as media, green, social and design entrepreneurs delivered speeches and engaged in discussions with conference-goers. Using the hashtag #WEFestival, attendees tweeted insightful snippets throughout the festival. Take a look through our slideshow of the most inspirational tweets, and vote for your favorites.
