The William & Mary Women’s Stock Pitch & Leadership Summit was held at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business at William & Mary. This event had two components: the stock pitch competition, which took place in the morning, and the leadership summit, which took place in the afternoon. Over 100 students from William & Mary and women representing top universities from across the country and the world participated in the stock pitch competition and summit. We also invited William & Mary alumni as well as professional guests to engage in the event.

Feedback From 2018 Attendees

“I just wanted to personally thank you for all the incredible work that was put into the organization and execution of the competition this past weekend. Being able to attend and be a part of a truly incredible experience was extremely rewarding, and something that will remain with me for the rest of my career. I am so thankful I was able to be surrounded by such powerful, successful, motivating individuals, and I hope we can all see more women taking a stand in the financial world in the years to come.” – Anna Simos (UConn)

The finance organization we represent (the University Securities Investment Team) has sent students to Harvard, UMichigan, USC, and Berkeley for national stock pitches in the past, but we can attest that the W&M Stock Pitch is by far the best-run and most impressive of these national competitions. Thanks again for giving us the chance to participate; we had an amazing time! – Phoebe Lin (The University of Texas at Austin)

I wanted to thank you for allowing BYU to participate in the Women’s Stock Pitch & Leadership Summit this year. I had such a fantastic time. I am currently a sophomore at BYU and will be applying to the finance program this summer. My entire experience with the Stock Pitch, from preparing since January to actually attending the event, has immensely helped me prepare for my program and my career. It was so inspiring to be surrounded by such driven women and interact with powerful women already in the work force. It was such an incredible experience and I hope to be able to attend again in the future! Thank you for all the hard work you put in to making it such an enriching experience. – Mallory Jones (BYU)
