Entrepreneurship Brunch with Soraya Darabi, Co-Founder at Zady.com
Sunday, August 10, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We are a monthly meetup group for women to connect and inspire each other, over brunch and mimosas. We provide women a comfortable atmosphere in which they can network, learn, and connect with each other over the most important meal of the week. Each month we'll curate the discussion and speaker, in order to learn valuable lessons and insights from amazing women.
What makes this event unique?
As a couple of classy ladies, we thought that there wasn't enough outlets to learn from other inspiring women. This is great way to share our stories and meet new people. We're trying to find a solution for more women supporters and make this an amazing brunch experience. Also, who doesn't want an excuse to brunch, try a new restaurant, or have a mimosa?
