About Us

Go for the Greens Team Partners Partners Partners Partners Partners


The mission of Go for the Greens Foundation Inc. is based on three 'green' pillars: business growth that leads to profit and creates jobs; sustainable business practices that foster a healthier planet; and business strategy through the sport of golf. The foundation hosts an annual conference to connect women-owned businesses with corporations, government agencies and nonprofits to encourage them to do business together in a safe and comfortable setting.

This is our amazing team

Go for the Greens is a high-level business development conference for women entrepreneurs. Since our first conference in 2008, we have produced a boutique event that offers exclusive access to companies, government agencies and nonprofits that can help women-owned businesses secure their largest, most profitable contracts ever. Go for the Greens is operated by the Go for the Greens Foundation Inc., a Florida-based nonprofit registered as a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
