Newswise — Babson College’s Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab® and Women Entrepreneurs Boston (WE BOS) invite all to attend their annual Summer Soiree—a free event to meet with, and learn more about, women entrepreneurs in the community and learn more about the program.
The soiree will also introduce attendees to available resources in the greater startup ecosystem, and dive into the WIN Lab’s WE BOS WINners Program and how to join the next cohort of high-growth women entrepreneurs.
Chandra Briggman, Director of Venture Café and Founder of Wide Angle Media, will kick-off the evening as a special guest speaker. With over 18 years of experience in both startups and large enterprises, in addition to serving as a WIN Lab coach and founder of digital magazine PATRONNÈ, Briggman will share her insights on women’s entrepreneurship in the Greater Boston area.
Three women entrepreneurs—Mishell Brookins Ekunsirinde, Founder of Stina & Mae, Beth Santos, Founder of Wanderful, and Cecile Thieulin, Founder of Simone Simon—will then share their stories and how the WIN Lab and WE BOS program played a major role in their entrepreneurial journeys.
When: Wednesday, June 7, 2017, 6-8 p.m.
Where: Central Wharf Company, 160 Milk Street, Boston, MA
