“Bringing it On” With Women Entrepreneurs

Mon, Jun 29, 2020, 4:00 PM (EDT)

About this event

We are very excited to celebrate this event by having an interactive during a Virtual Panel Discussion with four amazing women entrepreneurs from Frederick representing varied businesses. Some of the topics they will actively discuss with include:

• Their adventures of success and lessons learned in establishing their companies;

• The role their personal passion contributes to their motivation leading to success;

• How they use tactics and strategies to market their services/products;

• The biggest challenge they encounter from competition and how they deal with it;

• The importance of having a mission/vision and value statements.

• The changes they have implemented (if any) because of the COVID-19; and

• How they see the “New Norm” both internally and externally influencing their business.

Participation is encouraged and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and talk with the panelists during the viral chat. It’s all about engagement, so feel free to ask questions as they come up naturally, rather than waiting until the end. Have something on your mind you’d like to pose in advance?
