Badass Women Entrepreneurs PDX 2021
VertueLab and Women in Science PDX are coming together again for an annual event to spotlight badass women with badass science startups. The event convenes movers and shakers with different types of businesses, different science backgrounds from low to high tech, and non-traditional funding and support expertise.
We'll dive into their journeys, learn about their career path, challenges, triumphs, and the resources they couldn’t do without. We want to inspire and empower you to innovate, to brave the entrepreneur journey, and connect you with other women science-badasses, allies and local companies, partners, and mentors who can help launch an idea into the market.
Moderator Lindsey Murphy, of Crazy Aunt Lindsey and founder of The Fab Lab, will lead us through the exploration of how these badass women have taken their innovative ideas, rooted in science and tech, from just an idea to a fully implemented business. They’ll share their journey and insights; including when their business or tech idea originated, their first steps to the formation of their company, early funding pathways, navigating partnership legalities, valuable resources, and reflections on challenges they have overcome.
We will then be joined by another panel of professionals who will elaborate on the funding pathways mentioned by our badass women entrepreneurs, along with a tease into their very specific funding resource.
Then stick around for SPEED NETWORKING. This will be several 3-minute breakouts where you'll get the chance to connect with panelists and attendees. This session is introvert friendly - short and sweet. Long enough to make a connection, but often not long enough to get into too much depth. But that's where you can follow up for a virtual coffee or what not. We'll make sure to collect contact info.
This event is open to EVERYONE, regardless of gender identity.
