About this event


Join us for Startup Grind's Women's Month event!

We'll be touching on the following topics:

  • How to harmonize entrepreneurship and the rest of your life (i.e. caregiving duties as parents, caregivers, community members, etc.)
  • How to support the entrepreneur in your life (i.e. could take many forms - the entrepreneur is your romantic partner/spouse, friend, sibling, or employee transitioning out)
  • How to prepare mentally/emotionally/practically for the transition from side hustle to full-time entrepreneur
