Women Entrepreneurs Further Their Businesses at Womancon
Adrienne Garland and Laura Leites have got the right idea with Womancon. Womancon is a company that assists female entrepreneurs to build and further their businesses with various tools and resources. The media and content company was founded in January 2013 and will be hosting their third annual conference. Past womancon speakers include Andrea Smith, former technology producer at ABC news, and Kay Koplovitz, founder of USA Network. Penina Rybak, CEO of Socially Speaking LLC, attended and praised the conference in an article featured on Huffington Post last year. She emphasized the importance of live events and the opportunity to network and build connections in person even in a digital age.
Womancon 2015 will be held on September 29th and will feature speakers such as Janet Hanson of 85 Boards, Geri Stengel of Ventureneer, and other leading women in their fields along with talks and panels moderated by the two founders.
"I love what Womancon is doing to encourage female entrepreneurs." says Finny Varghese, President and CEO of Nexus Staffing and sponsor at Womancon 2015. "I want my daughters to have every opportunity to become strong business owners if the choose to and events like Womancon pave a way for their future."
