FEW Women’s Startup Club (WSC) “Took Off” for its third year on Wednesday, September 28. We were delighted to welcome Tanja Bach, Carolyn Pieroway and Melanie Uematsu as the new WSC Committee for the 2016-2017 FEW year. Thirty attendees, either already operating a small business or who just have a germ or an idea, met in Hiroo to introduce their products and services, share their successes to date, find solutions for obstacles they are experiencing, or just to get inspired and take off in their ventures!
The evening was also an opportunity for attendees to provide input on the topics they would like to see covered at WSC meetings over the coming year.
By popular vote, the current schedule for the year stands as follows:
Nov 30 Business Plan – What is it? Do I need it? If so, how do I do it?
Jan 25 Branding and Social Media
March 29 Pricing and Negotiations/ Closing a Sale (What am I worth and how can I get it?)
May 31 Digital Nomad – How to simplify your work life through the use of apps
July 26 Motivation and Mentoring – Kissing the Entrepreneur Blues Good-bye.
More information regarding the individual events will follow closer to the dates. In the meantime, feel free to contact Tanja, Melanie or Carolyn via email@example.com with any questions or visit our Women’s Start-Up Club page to find out further details on what WSC is all about.
