Be inspired from seeing how a non-traditional approach to change can make a big impact. Ari Horie, Founder and CEO of Women's Startup Lab describes a company designed to grow more successful female entrepreneurs from a community based on the concept of Hito ( ) and her experience of how a few small acts in her life led to what is now possible. Ari shares key moments in her life underpinning the creation of this company. Participate in her personal journey as an entrepreneur as she builds a company designed to grow more successful female entrepreneurs. Within a unique community, based on the concept of Hito ( ), founders develop a network of powerful support. Giving back, sometimes in the smallest of ways, can make a huge difference. A startup founder and their ideas are inseparable, so strong and effective skills in startup development and founder/leader competencies combine to grow a business and drive to success.
