Are you ready for June??


I know, I know, I am late for your weekly check-in… but it was a three-day weekend so I think I deserve a little slack and so do you! Should all work weeks only have 4 days?? I mean I’m a fan but that’s not what this is about.

It’s still another busy week as we head into another busy month (still can’t believe June starts tomorrow, but the passage of time continues to be inevitable). Don’t worry, June is going to be filled with plenty of events and news to surely keep you on your toes. Make sure to check out some of the new events we have lined up that you won’t want to miss!

This picture illustrates the weird time vortex we must be in if its already June tomorrow


Get these on your calendar!

 TOMORROW May 31st 5:00-7:30 pm

Whether you’re a solopreneur, small business owner or building the next unicorn, it takes money to build a business! Understanding how to best finance your business is one of the most critical parts of your journey to success. And it can also be one of the most overwhelming and daunting. Join SheMoneyKinect Capital and Womenpreneurs as well as expert guest speakers for an interactive workshop designed to help you:

  • Learn more about the capital landscape and the possibilities that exist for all types of businesses, whether you’re a one-woman-shop or on a mission to scale.
  • Identify the type of capital that’s appropriate for your startup or small business at your current stage of growth.
  • Deep dive into that category of funding to make sure you know how/where to access it, what’s required during the process, and the next steps you’ll likely need to take.
Breakout sessions include equity financing, debt financing, alternative financing, and grants & non-dilutive financing.
