Who is this for? Do I have to be an entrepreneur to join?
Women entrepreneurs, business owners, creatives, investors, leading a project at their current job, thinking of changing their professional direction - all of whom share one thing in common – they need TIME to ideate, to grow personally and professionally and want to join a community of inspiring women.
You don’t have to be a classic entrepreneur for joining us, we are looking for “hungry” women, that are looking to grow an idea while growing themselves.

How many women will participate?
As the retreat tackles some very deep//personal issues, we want to ensure the safety-net and maximum value for all. That means we are aware your time of expression shortens if we have too many participants.
While having experience hosting between 20-100 women in our retreat, we learned that for reaching maximum impact the number needs not to exceed 50 participants.
How do you choose participants?
We will only offer a space for those who can benefit the most out of this process; Our criteria also involved what are YOU bringing to the table. The women who participate are from all industries diverse backgrounds – from women who are currently working for a company, freelancing, taking their first steps in the business world, an entrepreneur at heart or have already built a successful business on their own. Ideas and courage have no age. Don’t ever feel too young, nor too old.
It needs to be the right time for you to take a leap in your life; personally and professionally.
How do I know if it’s my time?
If you read these lines, watched our videos and you feel excited and have a burning quest inside of you, we encourage you to take the leap and apply!
When does the retreat take place?
We meet Sept. 22 at 7am in Tel Aviv and you will return to Tel Aviv on September 24 at around 22:00. Kindly note that the retreat starts on the last day of Rosh Hashana and over Shabbat.
Where will it be?
Moa – a beautiful ecological resort located in a unique oasis. Moa was founded for the purpose of being a home for a culture of peace. Through ecological and holistic vision, built with local earth bricks and an architectural approach of simplicity and sustainability, it provides a base for gatherings in the magical ambiance of the desert.
How much is it?

After August 1st, prices start at 900$ and room upgrades are available.
What am I paying for?
Double You is an investment in your business and in yourself. The price covers your delicious food and beautiful rooms, content facilitated by an incredible team (meet the team), professional materials. Most importantly, it is a commitment to yourself, who you want to become and what you want to do. After the retreat, you become a community member and receive online support and inspiration from the Double You family which includes entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders.
What if it’s too expensive for me?
Double You is an investment in your business and in yourself. Women that come aspire to become financially independent and successful. We want this kind of money to be possible for you to generate for the growth of yourself and of your business. We invest a lot of resources to make sure it’s a good investment but the most important part is up to you; you really need to want it. You need to want to make a change, to take a leap and to take a risk. It is a commitment. If you really want to come; we really want to make it happen. We offer participants payment plans, we brainstorm with you on how to make it possible- if you show up for yourself, we will do so as well.
Will I be able to rest during the retreat?
Resting is subjective. For some it means dancing. For some others it means lying down. We will do both but the most importantly - you will get 3 days to be with YOURSELF and other people that are in the mindset of investing in themselves.
Will the retreat be held in English or in Hebrew?
Since the retreat is hosting international women, it will be held in English. We are aware that there will be a large group of Hebrew speakers and therefore in our smaller groups part of the content will be facilitated in Hebrew.
Is the retreat “Shabbat Friendly”?
We understand that holding the retreat during holiday makes it almost impossible for religious women to come. Since we changed our model to smaller groups, it will allow us to offer additional retreats that will address different needs of our community. Our last retreat in Israel was Shabbat friendly and participants gained a lot from the practice of Shabbat. We intend to offer additional Shabbat friendly retreats in the future. Read more about it here.
How does the Give Forward work?
For every retreat we do, we have decided to create a mini retreat for girls from low socio-economic backgrounds who, like us, need the support of other women to believe in themselves and work for their greatness. We connect with a community close to ours and develop a community plan that can make an impact in their lives. Some Double Yous say they feel being a mentor is more powerful to the mentor than to the mentee.
