Cynthia de Lorenzi likes to call herself a serial entrepreneur and social commentator on the status of women in our world today. She also encourages the label “open networker” and, just for fun, “Diva Extraordinaire.” Washington Business Journal selected her as one of the top 25 “Women Who Mean Business” in 2006 and SmartCEO awarded her the BRAVA award in 2009. Her organization, Success in the City has been featured in the Business Section of the Washington Post, NPR, DC Modern Luxury Magazine and Washington’s Finest.
As founder (in 2004) and chief executive officer of Success in the City, Ms. de Lorenzi leads an unconventional business networking organization for senior level executive businesswomen in the DC Metropolitan area. To help foster meaningful peer relationships and friendships among members, Success in the City’s format tosses creative and fun events as well as professional development discussions into the menu of opportunities to connect. Ms. de Lorenzi maintains that when women are given the opportunity to “really” connect on a dynamic personal level, personal growth as well as consummating “deals-on-heels” is assured. More than a thousand women have participated in SITC events.
She has partnered with EFX Media to launch Success in the City TV, an Internet TV network for women’s groups and organizations and her newest partnership and endeavor Pink Collar Ink Publishing.
Ms. de Lorenzi is passionate about empowering others and the principle of paying-it-forward.
