Breaking Barriers: Insights from Women Entrepreneurs

September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join other women entrepreneurs to share, talk and connect!

Women have unique considerations during their entrepreneurship journeys. What can we learn from trailblazing women in this space? Join us for a series that is all about breaking barriers. We will share stories, network with fellow women founders, innovators and professionals to build a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.

In this Breaking Barriers session, Emma Kirwin, founder of Dirt Market, will share her journey and insights in starting an innovative and environmentally conscious company. (plus she is a Lions Lair 2021 finalist!)

Note: This may be held as a live outdoor event @ MIP with Covid-19 protocols or a virtual Zoom event. You will have the option to state your preference on the Registration page. We will advise of the “venue” closer to the event date depending on registrant responses.
