Event Details

Bridge at Wagner, NYU Special Interest Housing and NYU Entrepreneur's Network

Women in Entrepreneurship

Many entrepreneurs face similar challenges: getting the first round of funding, launching while in school, or avoiding burnout in the lean years before your business becomes profitable. While we often look for ways to solve these challenges, we rarely talk about how this experience is different for women.

Join NYU Entrepreneurship Special Interest Housing, the NYU Entrepreneur's Network and Bridge at Wagner for a lively discussion with leading women entrepreneurs. From just out of school to established startups and investors, these speakers will draw on their diverse range of experiences to offer participants practical advice about how to get started regardless of your background and the resources available to you.

Light refreshments and beverages will be served.
