Keynote Speaker:

The keynote speaker for Women Mean Business® is Alex Batdorf, CEO of Get Sh!t Done.

Alex Batdorf is a 3X entrepreneur and CEO of Get Sh!t Done, the Collaborative Platform & Community supporting women entrepreneurs in growing game-changing businesses that scale generational impact through the network, knowledge, and know-how they need to get it done. After her first company failed, she created a community around her that enabled her to scale her second company to $1 million +. Once she discovered that only 1.7% of women entrepreneurs ever scale beyond $1 million, she made it her mission to ensure women have equitable access to the right resources they need to grow. Get Sh!t Done’s mission is to close wealth gaps through entrepreneurship by boosting revenues in women-owned businesses. Their goal is to empower women to break free of outdated status quo expectations while scaling companies that align with their unique vision of success. Before founding Get Sh!t Done, she was co-founder & CMO of ZipFit Denim, a multi-million dollar venture-backed e-commerce company that was acquired in 2019. She’s been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, and has spoken around the nation at Harvard, Turner Broadcasting, etc.
