Global Pitch Forum - 2022 Awardees pitch their projects for potential collaboration with previous awardees

12:30PM-1:30PM Lunch

Global Pitch Forum
The 2022 Awardees and a select group of awardees from 2007-2021 will be presenting their innovative projects to demonstrate how they may "pay forward" and help FWN in building next-generation projects that will benefit the Filipina women community in the awardee's geographic area. Awardees submitted a project during their nomination process with the potential of impacting the world community and help develop the awardee's global imprint.

The proposed project presentation is an opportunity to engage and invite previous awardees attending the Filipina Summit to collaborate and support her project.

The FWN Giving Circle's Fab4 in collaboration with the FWN BOD will provide feedback and potential for VC and Angel Investing Funding.
