Title: The Top 3 Obstacles for Entrepreneurial Women

Speaker: Maria Gibbs, Co-Founder, Invanti

Maria will highlight three obstacles faced by entrepreneurial women by sharing her own story along with stories of some of the founders she has worked with. Obstacles she’ll cover include the assumption that male co-founders are the ‘real’ decision makers, designing a role for yourself that is energy-giving as opposed to filling in the gaps for the rest of the team, and taking care of mental health needs without stigmatizing yourself as weak or sensitive. She hopes this will be an engaging dialog with plenty of questions and comments from the group as none of us have clearcut answers to these challenging questions!

One of WBOM’s goals is to support not only women business owners but also women in our community through our partner relationships with St. Margaret’s House, YWCA, and the SPARK Program at St. Mary’s College. Your contributions to our events allow us to continue those goals. We are always accepting donations via PayPal using the button below. Thank you for your generosity!
