Startup Grind Presents: An Intimate Look At Female Entrepreneurs in Patriarchal Industries

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Virtual Event

Join #startupgrind on April 29th as we take you behind the scenes and give you an in-depth look at female entrepreneurship in male-dominated industries.

Hosted by renowned CTV reporter Dana Levenson, this startupgrind features a diverse panel of female powerhouses — Judith Pineault, Peng-Sang Cau and Brooke Woboditsch — as they discuss their entrepreneurial journeys in patriarchal sectors, challenges faced by female entrepreneurs (then and now) and how we can do better moving forward.

Kicking off with opening remarks by Spark Centre’s CEO Sherry Colbourne and PARO’s Roz Lockyer, among others, followed by a lively panel of female virtuosos in business, plus networking — this is one startupgrind conversation you won’t want to miss!
