The All Raise Boston Chapter, alongside The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative at Northeastern University, is excited to host our 2nd Annual "Agents of Change" event on May 17th at Northeastern University where female and non binary founders can network and learn from some of Boston's biggest mentors and influencers!
Our dynamic interim CEO Paige Hendrix Buckner kicks things off with a question: "What is happening in Boston that makes our All Raise community so strong and vibrant?” Help her answer that question by sharing your story.
We will also hear from Mass Secretary of Economic Development, Yvonne Hao - who also co-founded Boston unicorn, PillPack. She will share her experience and ideas for growing our state's start-up economy.
In this half-day event, you'll receive direct mentorship along with other founders, and you will have the chance to brainstorm about the challenges of starting your own business: raising capital in challenging times, recruiting talent, work-life balance, and more.
The Fall event was a hit! Founders loved the format of gathering as a large audience and then breaking up into smaller discussion groups to really dig in to solutions for accelerating their businesses. If you missed it, here is a short recap video from the October event.
Discussion topics include:
1. Raising capital in challenging times
2. Finding advisors and getting help
3. Time management
4. Marketing / lead gen hacks
5. Work life balance - health
6. Recruiting talent
7. Student entrepreneurship
8. Open the black box of VC
We hope to see you on May 17th!
