The Pitch Competition.

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.

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.

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.


Our education focuses on:

 Investing in Hotels & Sourcing Deals
✓ Analyzing the Market

✓ Projecting the Return on Investment

✓ Structuring the Deal & Raising Capital

The glass ceiling will go away when women help other women break through

that ceiling.
