Women in Entrepreneurship Panel
The iSchool prepares information leaders to research information challenges and design solutions that improve people's lives and make information work. It's no surprise that graduates of the iSchool go on to lead and innovate from within companies as intrapreneurs. More and more, graduates of the iSchool are taking their creative solutions forward by founding companies and developing products as entrepreneurs whose technical and data skills become the perfect foundation for launching a business venture.
Whether you’re already working on a startup, want to know more about entrepreneurship, or are curious about the process of launching your own company, join WE Lead for a panel featuring entrepreneurial graduates of the iSchool. The featured alumnae speakers are using their iSchool degrees in entrepreneurial ways inside companies, and within their own ventures, and will share highlights and challenges from their own career journeys.
Ample snacks and beverages will be provided — be sure to register so we can plan accordingly, and to receive event updates.
