QueenPins was started in Spring 2016 by a group of women from Halifax with the mission to raise funds for a local cause while networking with other powerful women.  The event came together at lightning speed. In around 30 days the event was planned, marketed and executed. The inaugural event in May 2016 hosted over 100 women business leaders and raised funds for the Canadian Women’s Rugby Team. Building on the momentum of that first event, we’ve held another three in support of Junior Achievement Nova Scotia, Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, Eating Disorders Nova Scotia and Friendly Divas.

So, what goes on at QueenPins?

We don’t just network. We provide a well rounded experience for all involved. Yes, we get out there and make business and personal connections. But we believe it’s just as important to showcase local business owners at exhibitor booths, host inspiring and educational speakers, and give back to the community. Our events are a platform for women and the people who support them to network, learn, and engage while supporting local causes.
