Join us for a lively and insightful discussion with successful local female entrepreneurs

Whether you are a woman business owner who would like to connect with other local women entrepreneurs, an entrepreneur who's thought about starting your own business but don't know where to start, or simply someone who would like to support more local woman-owned businesses, this panel is for you! 

Arlington Public Library and BizLaunch are partnering together to host a panel discussion centering on Arlington-based women entrepreneurs who have successfully launched their own businesses. The panel, moderated by BizLaunch Director Tara Palacios, will highlight the resilience of local woman-owned businesses in celebration of women's history month but also to inspire other women who may be considering launching businesses of their own. The panel will be followed by a Q&A and time for networking. Light refreshments will be served.
