What is ACCESS2?

Conceived by the founding team at The Next Billion, Access2 is a series of dinners giving female entrepreneurs real life face-2-face access to a ‘host’ of inspirational role models and influential leaders from a cross selection of industries. Our aim is to make ‘Access finally more Accessible’.

 

How does it work?

Each host will welcome up to 8 female entrepreneurs to their home (yes that’s right their real home) to share with them their experience, knowledge and network in an inclusive and authentic environment.

 

How are the hosts chosen?

Hosts are chosen from among top business leaders in the city. Many of our hosts nominate a connection from their network to host a future dinner.

 

What do female entrepreneurs gain?

Access to the host and his/her extended network. Post the dinner, each host pledges to open up their contact book and make an introduction between one key connection and the female entrepreneurs lucky to sit at their table.

NEXT ACCESS2: Auckland, NZ

Want to gain #ACCESS2 to New Zealand’s most influential business leaders and have them open up their network to you?

For the next edition of Access2 we’re thrilled that one of NZ’s most innovative entrepreneurs Frances Valintine will invite 7 female founders to take a seat at her table.

For this edition, we’ve partnered with Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) to enable one promising female student to join the table.
