Our goal is to increase the number of women owning and developing hotels; therefore, the She Has a Deal Hotel Pitch Competition creates a pathway by expanding the participants’ knowledge of investing in hotels and encourages them to pursue hotel ownership and development.


The Competition will facilitate the  process for acquiring or developing a hotel and securing capital for the deal. Participants are expected to identify a viable project and pitch the deal to potential investors who will also serve as judges for the Competition.


With the objectives of inspiring, educating, mentoring and channeling the power of collaboration, the experience will begin prior to the day-long on-site  Competition event. There is a live online educational component of 4 modules to be delivered by hotel industry luminaries that provide the participants with a base of education to prepare them for the Competition as well as to chart their path to ownership. The modules are:

1.     Investing in Hotels

2.    Analyzing the Market

3.    Projecting the Return on Investment

4.    Structuring the Deal & Raising Capital

 Lay it all on the table.
