Are you a brave, driven, ambitious woman who has dreamed of carving your own path? Do you have a desire to build something new and challenge the status quo?

Building a business is never easy, the startup failure rate is over 90%. Women business owners face increased challenges compared to their male counterparts. Last year only 17% of women launched a business and almost half-of female founders (48 %) cite a lack of available mentors or advisers as holding them back. 

Here at The CLUB we want to change that! We know that many of our members already own or have a desire to build their own business therefore, starting next September we want to create a community for current and aspiring female founders to share their stories, learn from and nurture one another. To help us begin this journey we are inviting you to an introductory session on Wednesday, June 22nd at 6:00pm.

We are very lucky to have Svetlana Kamyshanskaya and Niyati Shah joining us for this special event where we will talk about the challenges you've faced, determine the roadblocks keeping you from starting your business or taking it to the next level, and discuss the content that you would like to see within our Fierce Female Founders workshops.
