Here at The Hustle, we understand the power of storytelling.

And when it comes to stories, there’s one group in particular that we can’t get enough of: successful, badass women.

So, we’re gathering a bunch of inspirational women – all experts in their fields – and giving them a platform to tell their stories… stories about pivotal moments in their journey that helped them get to where they are today.

Here’s the only rule: each speaker only has 10 minutes to tell it.

In 2018, The Hustle is bringing 2X to 7 cities across the United States. Each city will feature female speakers who inspire, empower, and tell one hell of a story.

Join us, won’t you?

I LOVED this event! I’ve been to other similar events with successful (male or female) entrepreneurs before, but I’ve never seen so many inspiring and RELATABLE stories.
Props to Hustle for finding ladies who are making an impact but are still fairly under the radar, and giving them a platform.
The speakers were AMAZING and incredibly inspirational. I wanted more and wanted them to talk all night!
