Description


Arlan Hamilton said it best: “Black women are the best hackers.”

Welcome to buildHER: a breakfast series for Black female founders.
  • Learn actionable strategies from other Black women who know what it’s like to start and scale a successful business even while being undervalued, underestimated and (often) under-resourced.
  • Build connections and community with local female founders and get the real tea on starting, funding and scaling a startup from other Black women who are building amazing companies.
  • Spend a Monday morning enjoying breakfast, good company and intimate conversations with dope female founders, investors and industry experts.

At this buildHER breakfast, we're chatting with Marah Lidey, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Shine, to discuss building a startup at the intersections of tech and wellness. We'll hear from Marah as she shares her lessons learned while building Shine's MVP and pitching investors, the strategies she and her co-founder leveraged to scale to 2 million users in just two years, and what's next for tech-enabled wellness.

Our Schedule:

8:30 AM - 9:00 AM / grab breakfast and connect with some amazing fellow founders
9:00 AM - 9:25 AM / moderated discussion w. our special guest buildHER, Marah Lidey
9:25 AM - 10:00 AM / open Q&A (come prepared to ask Marah all about building a tech/wellness startup!)

Krystal-Scott-Headshot
Krystal Scott is a creative and advocate who is committed to creating space for Black women to thrive. Krystal is Founder & CEO of The Well, a powerful global community of Black women at work. Krystal has a decade's experience in health policy, advocacy and community organizing, and she spent the majority of her advocacy career as the only Black woman in leadership (and the only Black woman in most rooms).
