Digital Entrepreneurship and Modern Womanhood

Monday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

412 Congress Ave

When it comes to digital entrepreneurship work-lifestyle balance, there’s far more than meets the eye. While social media and innovative technologies have inspired a fierce new generation of women entrepreneurs, success still requires analog ingredients of long hours and business savvy to cut through competition. Meanwhile, the appearance of effortlessness and seamless authenticity can’t be sacrificed in the process. Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin, hosts of Stuff Mom Never Told You, chat with a diverse panel of women digital entrepreneurs who are revolutionizing what success looks like from the grassroots to the corner office.
