Women Entrepreneurs Make it Happen

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 3:44 PM

Word of this came through at the last minute, but if you're sitting at a desk wishing you were working for yourself instead of someone else, or if you just wish you were working period, you may want to alter your happy hour plans. The Oregon Entrepreneur’s Network is hosting a panel discussion from 5:15-7 at Backspace this evening, specifically by and for female entrepreneurs. (Fun fact: Portland was rated the fifth best city in the nation for women entrepreneurs by the financial company with the cutest name, NerdWallet.)

They've got Ivo Lukas from the PR firm 24Notion; Jennifer Ferguson, who started the Handful sports bra company; and Pacific Light Technologies' Juanita Kurtin, with Chez Marie food company/Castor & Pollux pet company's Shelley Gunton moderating. It could be just the ticket if you're pondering your next career move, and besides Backspace has your wine and vittles, too.

Or, just watch the cute product video for Handful bras:
