4 YEARS, 6 EVENTS, AND 200+ ATTENDEES LATER…

Here’s what our Hustlers had to say!

The expert advice from a force of women curated by the Hustle + Socialize team was the explosive wealth of resources, advice, and tools I needed in one conference to build into the success of my business. I am thankful for the H+S community and the energy they bring to the women professionals looking to grow.

H+S Attendee

This conference superseded its reputation and is by far one of the best I’ve attended. I’m feeling so inspired by women of color in my community. Taking away so many
nuggets of truth, reminders that I’m on the right path, and tangible tools for growth.  I will 100% be recommending this conference to friends!

H+S Attendee

Hustle + Socialize made me feel less alone in the entrepreneurial sense! I loved seeing the community of badasses in my own community!
