Eight Lessons for Success from Female Founders in SheWorx

Being a successful entrepreneur means more than starting a business. It means late nights and long hours, scraping by on something that resembles a paycheck. Developing pitch decks. Formatting business plans. Networking. Coffee dates. Nail biting. Molar grinding. Follow up calls and well-drafted e-mails. Waiting for the phone to ring. It’s not a glamorous life. But there are plenty of women who have gained respect and garnered success in the startup world. SheWorx brought together 200 female founders at the SheWorx100 Summit Series, to discuss their most valuable entrepreneurial attributes and lessons learned along the way.
