July 31, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The #SheOwnsIt Seminar Series convenes women entrepreneurs and leaders to build a stronger community of support and enhance the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Lancaster. The seminar series will feature time for networking with peers, thought-provoking breakout sessions, light refreshments, and lectures from experts in the community.
Expert speaker: Melisa Baez-Snyder, ASSETS’ Director of Entrepreneur Training
Women Owned Business speaker: Laurie Myers, Owner of Cafe301
Seminar #1 Description: The traditional method of starting a business requires entrepreneurs to build a comprehensive business plan and launch their products or services without being certain of whether the idea will be successful. In contrast, the lean start-up model enables entrepreneurs to strategize a minimum viable product around the needs and desires of their customers and more easily adapt to changes as they grow their business. In this session, we will equip you with a new framework for learning directly from customers and rapidly testing and iterating your ideas with the end goal of developing a streamlined business plan. You will also learn how to incorporate impact- social or environmental- from the idea phase of your lean start-up model.
Cost: $25 per seminar or $100 for all five seminars
