Women’s Entrepreneur Festival is almost here

We are almost sold out.  The event is lined up and ready to go.  I am getting the honor interviewing Diane Von Furstenberg on Wednesday evening January 21st.  The day of the event in the morning of the 22nd Erica Orange will speak to us about trends…and there is more.

Take a look at our panels and moderators below.  A powerful group of women who I am looking forward to hearing from and seeing in a few weeks including the attendees.

Still a few seats available.  Click here for info.

    I’ve signed up and am looking forward to this. Great ventures, entrepreneurs and partners on the docket. I’m flying in from the midwest because you can’t get this quality in women’s entrepreneur support out here.

    1. Gotham Gal

      we should change that.

    I’m so excited. Loved it last year and my business has grown so much since then that I’m going to be looking at it with a different set of “eyes” I really can’t wait….

    1. Gotham Gal

      i love that!

    How can a starving entrepreneur join the party 🙂

    Just have to ask…why no “corporate/professional” photo? Just curious; but all others above you have one. Isn’t this part of “branding”? Sort of don’t like asking this…but mean well.

    1. Gotham Gal

      I actually just had a bunch of professional photos taken. I should fix!

    Going to be in Ann Arbor so I will not be there – looks like you put together a good line up once again!!! DVF- OMG!!!:)

    What an inspiring event! It’d be great to see more women of color included in the lineup at future events.

    1. Gotham Gal

      Agreed. We did last year. It is definitely part of our thinking
