TOPIC
We welcome our diversity and strive to create an environment where all different kinds of women can thrive and succeed together. We are different, yet united together in our challenges as women entrepreneurs, innovators and leaders.
More women are starting businesses, but they still face challenges operating their businesses.  Women are struggling to survive in the business environment given these challenges.
For many women, there are simply not enough role models, community or professional networks and mentors available to help guide them through entrepreneurship — especially in under-served communities or in less formal businesses.  
InspireHer Café Night will explore the 7 Challenges Women Entrepreneurs Face and how to overcome them, together. Featuring advice and forward-looking ideas from successful female entrepreneurs.
