Shelley Zalis, CEO, of the Female Quotient
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 facilitates the process for acquiring or developing a hotel and securing capital for the deal. Participants identify a viable project and pitch the deal to potential investors who serve as judges for the Competition.
With the objectives of inspiring, educating, mentoring and channeling the power of collaboration, the experience begins prior to the day-long on-site Competition event. There is a live online educational component of 4 modules that are 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 & Sourcing Deals
2. Analyzing the Market
3. Projecting the Return on Investment
4. Structuring the Deal & Raising Capital
