The Pitch Competition.
Our goal is to increase the number of women owning and developing hotels; therefore, the She Has a Deal Hotel Investment Pitch Competition creates a pathway by expanding the participants’ knowledge of investing in hotels and encourages them to pursue
hotel ownership and development.
About the Competition.
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. Find out how the competition works!
With the objectives of inspiring, educating, mentoring and channeling the power of collaboration, the experience begins prior to the Competition event. Our multi-module educational series is delivered by hotel industry luminaries that provide the participants with the knowledge to prepare for the Competition and chart a path to ownership.
For 2022 we have added a second competitive track for our pitch competition called Today's Woman. Today's Woman is for the entrepreneur with experience in hospitality or real estate investments.
Our education focuses on:
✓ Investing in Hotels & Sourcing Deals
✓ Analyzing the Market
✓ Projecting the Return on Investment
✓ Structuring the Deal & Raising Capital
How It Works.
The glass ceiling will go away when women help other women break through

What is the difference between the new track and the existing track?
The existing track is for Early Careerists, it focuses on building the pipeline of women hotel owners and developers. Today’s Woman is for the seasoned professional who is ready to close on a hotel deal "today" but needs additional education and guidance to succeed.
How do I know which pitch competition is the right one for me?
The early careerist track is for women who are interested in hotel ownership and development and would like to begin exploring the possibilities. She is just beginning her career and does not have the business experience or resources to sponsor a hotel investment project today.
Today’s Woman knows that hotel ownership and development is for her. She would like to lead hotel investment projects and sponsor her first deal; however, she needs additional support and resources to maximize her success. Or she currently owns a hotel(s) but has never sponsored a deal and would like to grow her existing portfolio of hotel investments.
