Thank you to everyone who attended our sold out ‘Entrepreneurship Panel: Enterprising Women in Powerful Positions’ event, it was a success! Seeing as October was Small Business Month, it was only fitting to have an event that focussed on female entrepreneurs.

Our fierce moderator, Emily Mills, led the conversation for the evening and was joined by our amazing panel: Anat Davidzon, Rita Vinieris, Sara Cohen and Liz Falconer.

Our panel talked about what it’s like to be your own boss, the early years, the best advice they’ve ever received and much more. Towards the tail end of the conversation, the floor was open to our attendees for a Q/A session and the conversation was refreshingly real.

As well, for the first time ever, Lean In Canada had an event marketplace and showcased a handful of dynamic female entrepreneurs and their products. Thank you MÉLODIE Ties for Her, Bluish, Pastel Dress Party and Biko for being a part of our intimate marketplace and for adding to the success of the evening. Thank you for also providing the raffle prizes – the winners were thrilled with their prizes!
