Elevate: Women in Business Series | Ready, Set, Succeed | 1/25/2023 January 25, 2023, 12:00pm PST January 25, 2023, 1:30pm PST

Women-owned businesses are on the rise, and there are a significant number of micro/small businesses being created by women. There are many dynamics that impact woman entrepreneur/business owners that are not shared by men in business. This roundtable series is designed to give women business owners a place to share ideas, receive helpful insights from peers, and benefit from the experiences of SCORE volunteers and other SMEs. 

Start the year off right—plan to build business with the helpful insights and experiences of other women in business. 

In the first 2023 Elevate Roundtable, you will get new ideas on:

  • Facing unexpected hurdles
  • How to be nimble 
  • Dealing with a changing business landscape
