Start With A Weekend, Stay For A Lifetime    

Like any great relationship we're forging something unforgettable right from the start. Dovetail Summits are intimate annual weekends and an ongoing community that create space for successful female entrepreneurs to step away from their business and step into next-level business and personal growth. 

I have attended hundreds of events in my career, and this is by far the best event I’ve ever been to, from an attendees and programming perspective

our community is amazing

We Hate To Brag, But Our Community's Amazing

It's not just about the beautiful private venues, workshops, fireside talks, mastermind sessions, roundtables, delicious food and drinks, spas, and fantastic activities.

Our time together is about the bonds that are formed, the 100% pitch-free support that the community offers from the minute you walk in the door, and most importantly - the feeling that you're not alone, and you have an army of women standing behind you supporting your continued success.

I am forever changed by this event, and all of the incredible women I met this weekend.
— Lara McCulloch, External CMO, Marketing Consultant

Dovetail Summits are like the VIP Lounge at the best event you've ever attended, but without any posturing, inauthenticity, fancy or uncomfortable heels.  They're where you want to be, building genuine connections with the best, brightest, and most thoughtful, generous and down-to-earth female founders, investors, and innovators.

This event isn't about one woman at the front of the room - it's about each and every carefully curated participant, and the experience, knowledge, and insight that they bring to the table.



This event has assembled simply the best kind of female entrepreneurs you can imagine: generous, giving and looking for ways to increase each other’s influence and impact. The location was nothing less than STELLAR (mountains, lake, luxury cabins) and truly LIFE-CHANGING conversations! This event is like no other and I can’t wait till the next Dovetail!
