Session 4 of 6 of the FOUND/LA + LACI: Coffee Talk Series

About this event

FOUND/LA and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) are hosting a 6-part event series from May - September 2022 as a part of LACI's Women in Cleantech (WICT) program. Our goal is to host a welcoming space filled with supportive leaders and provide women founders with actionable resources to help their businesses thrive. Each session will include a focused topic and presentation, guided workshopping, and time for coffee and networking!

Join us on August 5 for our fourth Coffee Talk session: Marketing & Brand Awareness: Finding Your Purpose. We are so excited to hear from our featured speakers:

  • Natalie Byrne - Founder of blank space and longtime social impact strategist and thought leadership consultant for our Founders, Jane and Raymond Wurwand. Natalie has worked with Wurwand Foundation and Dermalogica for many years, alongside many other corporate, nonprofit and talent clients to date and is an expert on finding your bigger “why” in business.
  • Mayra "Yare" Recendez - With six years of legal advocacy and non-profit experience, Mayra currently blends branding with purpose as the Marketing & Communications Director for South LA Cafe.
  • Celia Ward-Wallace (will be providing a followup video) - Co-Founder of South LA Cafe and South LA Community Foundation to name a few of her many titles and roles. Celia is an incredible example of an entrepreneur living and breathing her social impact values in her business and her personal life.

This event will be held in person at South LA Cafe, a FOUND/LA and LACI partner, located at 1700 Browning Blvd in South LA. While we will make every effort to ensure a seat for all, please note that seating is limited and first come first serve.

A virtual link is also available for accessibility purposes. Please register HERE if you'd like to join the event via Zoom.

All gender identities are welcome!
