Thank you to those who joined us for our kick-off breakfast in November 2017: we are excited to launch this brand new series all about helping women entrepreneurs in Hamilton succeed!
Join us on Wednesday, January 17 for a breakfast session as we begin exploring the many facets of women’s entrepreneurial identities.
We will explore the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship for women. Through group discussion, examples, and hands- on exercises, participants will cover the following:
• What it takes to be an entrepreneur
• The differences for women including the strengths, challenges and trade-offs • An assessment of entrepreneurial skills and competencies
• Building an action plan and next steps
Accelerator for women in entrepreneurship
The series is designed with the female entrepreneur in mind and tailored to your specific needs and challenges. Gender-related issues in the sector will be examined and discussed in depth. The focus is on acknowledging where there are differences as well as opportunities for women entrepreneurs. You will leave each session empowered with the information, ideas, and resources to reach your business potential.
It is the perfect learning and networking opportunity for women considering entrepreneurship and women with early stage businesses who want to accelerate growth. Advanced Manufacturing, defined as the use of innovative technology, processes and methodology to improve products and services will also be one of our key themes. Topics explored will range from the Entrepreneurial Identity for women, leadership presence and confidence, negotiations, selling & social capital, financing, business, marketing and more!
