About FEW Women’s Start-up Club

WSC March 2018 Collage The Three Pillars of Women’s Start-up Club:

  1. Thought: Speakers who make us think and give us real and useful information to help our businesses/plans for starting a business.
  2. Talk: The chance to ask questions and contribute to the evening.
  3. Takeaways: A summary of the message by the speaker for each meeting.

Our Vision:

  • To provide a place where like-minded women can talk in a safe and supportive environment about their business successes and issues.
  • To give all women a chance to speak out
  • To provide quality speakers who will enhance our businesses.

All women welcome, whether you have just started your own business, have been running one for years, want to start one or just want to be inspired by meeting energetic women!
