Even the world’s most successful entrepreneurs will tell you there is no book that can fully prepare you for entrepreneurship. As you embark on your entrepreneurial journey, take advantage of the network of trailblazing women who have been there before. Join us and our co-sponsor, Center for Women and Enterprise on February 11, 2019 to hear from successful women entrepreneurs and industry leaders who will inspire you to help turn your ideas into reality, and build a community of support as you take yourself to the next level.
If you are a woman who has a dream and a mission to turn her ideas into reality, this event is for you!
Come get inspired, make new connections and get empowered in this new era of “The Fempreneur”!
Gentlemen, don’t be shy! Although the name implies that this is a female-only event, you are more than welcome to attend.
