Event description

Description

If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.

WHERE: Your Desk, 1-3/204 Clarence St, (Sydney CBD location)

WHEN: Friday, 28th July

TIME: 6.00PM - 8.00PM

TOPIC // Growing a Global Brand - From Idea, to Startup, to Growth

We're joined by a lineup of incredible female founders from the US, who have each achieved incredible feats in the tech space, including raising hundreds of thousands in venture captial, and working across the likes of Uber, Google, and ModCloth. Hear their stories, learn from their success and mistakes, and be inspired to think about your business on a global on scale.

1) Tickets are $30 (+booking fee), or $15 (+booking fee) for League members.

2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and last minute decide they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it – we want to meet you!

3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and we use the word “connecting” and that’s because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thickshakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heartspace.
