Sam Conaway is a female entrepreneur and community builder who has made it her
lifes work to empower women. As the co-founder of EmpowHer, Sam has created a
platform that champions women in business and provides them with the tools and
resources they need to succeed.
Sam’s story is one of resilience, hard work, and determination. Despite growing up in Las Vegas as an introvert who often struggled to fit in, she persevered. Because she has experienced moments of isolation and anxiety while building her first business on her own, this is what motivated her to establish a community where women do not have to go through entrepreneurship feeling alienated. Her goal was to construct a community that would enable women to establish impactful connections, receive the proper business resources, and find support throughout their entrepreneurial journeys. Sam and her business partner, Rachel, launched EmpowHer in 2021 to achieve this goal.
From the beginning, Sam and Rachel knew they wanted to create events that were
different from the typical pitchfest events common in the industry. They wanted to
infuse elements of show business and production while placing emphasis on
personal development and vulnerability. Their events feature a range of
performances, from dance acts and live music to exotic animals and money guns, as
well as empowering public speakers and transformative activities like ice baths.
Attendees are always in for a surprise and keep returning for more.
In less than a year, they successfully launched the top-ranked women’s networking
company in Austin, TX, catering to a community of 10,000+ women. In addition, they
organized over 100 in-person events, started a membership platform and initiated a mastermind program. Sam and Rachel have fostered deep transformational experiences for their community through their efforts.
Sam’s impact on women in business is significant, and her story inspires many. She
has dedicated her career to empowering women and providing them with the tools
and resources they need to succeed. In addition, her focus on community building and the power of connection and proximity has helped countless women connect and build meaningful relationships, personally and professionally.
Sam faced her fair share of challenges and obstacles as a female entrepreneur.
However, her unwavering commitment to her vision and community helped her
overcome these challenges and emerge as a successful leader in the industry. She
believes in the power of mentorship and seeks guidance from experienced mentors
who have achieved the success she aims for. By implementing the strategies
recommended by these experts and staying consistent and focused on her vision,
she has grown rapidly.
Sam’s ultimate goal is to fill a stadium one day and become the largest personal
development company for women in business worldwide. She is fully committed to
making this a reality, and her confidence is not a question of “if” but “when”.
