TCN’s Annual Women’s Breakfast
February 25, 2014
IBM Innovation Center, Cambridge

The female factor is proving to show that companies with a woman in a leadership position are more likely to succeed. Whether as Founder, CEO, Board Director, or Investor, women can offer a unique perspective, vision, and management style that can put the company a few notches above the rest.

Join us as we discuss the impact women make on startups with a highly-impactful panel, followed by small-group breakout conversations led by successful investors from Golden Seeds, among other angel groups from the community, and entrepreneurs in the Boston startup ecosystem, that just happen to be female, and female supporters.
