Growing Companies, Raising Children

Building a company is like having a baby. It’s a lot of hard work, it’s an emotional rollercoaster, you’re sleep deprived, you’re broke, it’s all you can think about...the list goes on. But what if you have a company AND children?

Join us on an exploration of entrepreneurship and parenthood.
How does entrepreneurial experience make us better parents and vice versa?
What are the honest truths about struggle, stress and integration of those worlds?

We’re talking about things that are spoken about behind closed doors or not shared at all.
Whether you’re a parent and entrepreneur yourself, or thinking about it, this event is meant to connect you to others who have been there and done that. It’s meant to break down the barriers of building a company and raising children. Join us for an authentic and transparent conversation on growing companies and raising children.
