Enterprise customers for a startup are challenging. Especially if you've focused on product over customer engagement and market requirements.

Are Seattle B2Bs savvy going from startup > idea > Series A and > beyond? What about women as founders of B2B companies? Hear how fabulous and interesting women entrepreneurs went from concept to customers to scale. There were pitfalls. There was heartache. They questioned the why and and maybe even thought of giving up at some points in their company evolution.

Join us if you want to leverage each others' experiences. Let's discuss how we can help the next women founders improve their and every woman's odds for success and what that can look like.
