The WatchHerWork + GotSpot Texas Female Founders Day kicks off SXSW 2020 with inspiring keynotes and transformative workshops designed to empower diverse women entrepreneurs.

Texas Female Founders Day is focused on empowering women entrepreneurs and activating female investors to improve support and access to resources for women-led startups. The event invites female founders who are in town for SXSW to come learn, connect, and share moments they've failed and prevailed as entrepreneurs.


"We're building an inclusive and equitable ecosystem that inspires, connects and empowers diverse entrepreneurs," affirms Grace Rodriguez, CEO and Executive Director of Impact Hub Houston, fiscal sponsor for the event. "The Texas Female Founders Day -- led by two female founders themselves, Denise Hamilton of WatchHerWork and Reda Hicks of GotSpot -- aims to advance equal representation of and resourcing for women entrepreneurs. We stand behind them to help move that mission forward, and we encourage our broader community to join us in supporting this impactful event." 


The one-day intensive summit will include:

  • Speakers, workshops and mentor sessions specifically geared toward Texas women in the startup space
  • Opportunities for female founders to showcase their startups, enjoy mentoring and celebrate their peers.
  • Stories from real female founders who've grown their businesses from $0 to $1 Million +
  • The opportunity for female founders to win membership to Impact Hub Houston and gain access to the Impact Hub Global Network
  • Networking with female founders and thought leaders in the entrepreneur ecosystem.
