About this event

Join us for a unique Women’s Month event featuring entrepreneurs from Maryland’s technology and life sciences community. Hear from four women leaders as they share their experiences – from overcoming obstacles to advancing their businesses and securing funding. They’ll also discuss the current climate of entrepreneurship for women leaders and how to best navigate the start-up community.

TEDCO’s new Senior Director of Venture Funds, Katherine Hill Ritchie, will lead this lively discussion with innovative founders from TEDCO’s portfolio.
