Women In Business Summit (WIB Summit)

Mission:  To develop a strong community of female entrepreneurs by providing quality programming and resources that inspire and elevate opportunities for equity.


Who Attends: Diverse women who are part-time or full-time entrepreneurs, or

professionals, who are looking to change their lives in a positive direction through learning, inspiration, and genuine connections with other female leaders.

The Women in Business Summit (WIB Summit) was founded in 2005 by Kisha Zullo.  It was created to provide a platform outside of the workplace to educate, encourage and inspire women to achieve their career and personal goals.  The energy at the Summit is magnetic! Attendees seamlessly connect to each other and the information to help resolve their career and personal challenges.

The summit provides a platform for a diverse audience of new recruits, entrepreneurs, and industry veterans to receive training and information in an interactive manner to assist them in achieving their career and personal goals.  Attendees have the opportunity to network with other professionals and join in discussions about subjects that are relative to their growth. This one day conference connects people to their next mentor, friend, client or employee. 

We focus on these key areas:

  • Entrepreneurship

  • Leadership Development

  • Personal Development 

  • Financial Management 


Each year we select a charity to support with a donation. In the past we've also supported: Survive For Women; CIL’s AccesSolutions program; The Ana Grace Project; Dress for Success Springfield; Dress for Success Hartford; GoodWorks; My Sister’s Place; YWCA Hartford Region; Prudence Crandall, and Junior Achievement of Southwest New England.
