It was a really awesome event and an amazing opportunity for talented inventors to connect. The work WIT does is very meaningful, and there is no better opportunity for entrepreneurial, innovative women in toys than to become involved with WIT.
This venue afforded me the opportunity to meet with so many different cutting-edge companies. I would never have been able to single-handedly do this myself in a million years! I appreciate all the support WIT has given me to boost my product to new heights. Thank you!
WIT provided me with unparalleled access to toy industry leaders and terrific opportunities for networking.
I am an industry veteran, and this event is so much more than networking. I met some of the most inspirational people whose thoughts and experiences created new ideas and solutions for thoughts I’ve had on the back burner.
Great job! The women at the helm of Women in Toys are not only making a difference in the industry as a whole, but also empowering women entrepreneurs to achieve tangible goals.
I learned so much and have a new plan and direction. I’m very grateful to WIT!
In one single day, entrepreneurs have an opportunity that would take years to gain access to otherwise. The event truly is "empowering" for women on so may levels. Thank you!
Between the opportunity to pitch major retailers, the amount of info learned, and the networking opportunities, WIT Empowerment Day is a must-attend event.
It's a wonderful way to meet fellow entrepreneurs, get industry experts' advice and buyer feedback. To have one-to-one moments with so many experts in one day is just extremely helpful for my business.
It provides mentorship, guidance and support to all toy industry professionals, whether just breaking into toys, or those with decades of experience.
