September 2017 Women’s Start-up Club Recap: Share your Passion and Maintain it through Masterminding

WSC September 226 attendees defied the rain to join The FEW Women’s Start-up Club‘s kick-off meeting of the 2017-2018 year on September 26, 2017. WSC’s goal is to provide resources, support and networking opportunities for women entrepreneurs and those who want to become entrepreneurs. We invite everyone to play an active role as WSC is a “business start-up support group that is what you make it to be!”

True to the WSC spirit, the first meeting focused on “sharing your passion” and provided a platform to establish contacts and form mastermind groups.

We started off with a speed dating exercise, where participants were given 5 minutes each round to share their passion, their goals for the year and areas of support. You could feel the vibe and excitement in the room during those interactions!

Following that, each attendee had the opportunity to share their passion with the group by giving a 30-second elevator speech. It was exciting to hear the diversity of experiences represented, ranging from a mix of start-ups, business ideas and established businesses – a diversity of experiences that we all will be able to benefit from in the upcoming meetings.

Peer Coaching, moral-support and business support are some other keys factors for success and cornerstones of the WSC. After some general information about “Masterminding,” the participants were encouraged to connect and form their own masterminding groups.

The formal part of the event ended with a final brainstorming session to establish future meeting topics. Based on this input, the WSC committee lined up the following meetings for the rest of the WSC year. Please note that all upcoming events will feature specialists on that topic and combine the information with a practical workshop-style approach and masterminding opportunities.

Mark your calendars accordingly!
