San Diego CEO/Executive Panel Forum
Love of the Start:
How Women Founders Started and Launched Successful Businesses!
A recent study found that from 1997-2013 women-owned businesses increased by 59%. Women business owners are also becoming serial entrepreneurs, breaking the mold of a bastion once held only by men.
Join our panel of successful women founders and CEO’s as we address the following questions: “What was the compelling reason and opportunity that prompted you to start your business?! What frustrations have occurred along the way in building your enterprise?! What surprises occurred that you didn’t expect in staying profitable?! What drives you most to succeed?! What have been the hardest lessons you’ve had to learn in building a business?! If you started your business again…..would you do it all over again?! What advice do you have for a woman looking to start or build a business enterprise?! What is your best advice for someone thinking of starting a business as their 2nd or 3rd career?!”
There’s so much to learn and so little time! Join our Connected Women of Influence Members and invited guests as we plan for a spirited discussion to address these issues and more, through the eyes of our road-worthy expert panelists!!
