Thirty-one women from different backgrounds, representing start-ups, established business and social enterprises came together to learn about strategic networking, share their experiences as women trying to make it in a competitive marketplace, and to spark new connections. Each entrepreneur present gave a 40-second “pitch” about their project or business, before listening to an inspirational presentation by Chief of Institutional Relations for Walmart Patricia Xavier.
