Building and growing a business should be a great adventure, but not if you get lost in the process. The FinFoundHer Summit provides experiential learning for women entrepreneurs at all stages of growth, helping them navigate and chart their individual paths to profitability. This event brings together carefully curated experts to help founders determine the appropriate growth strategy for their companies. Founders learn good governance procedures, client acquisition, team building and retention, investor relations and due diligence processes, as well as hone their negotiation skills. Attendees are guided through the capital-raising process and different types of available funding so they can determine what’s best for their companies. FinFoundHer also brings together funders and founders in order to create a climate of understanding and success for both sides. The goal is to create a healthy, self-perpetuating ecosystem by helping today's founders succeed and become tomorrow's funders.


Corum Group will be presenting "Getting in the Merge Lane" on May 17 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. The conference also continues through May 18.


Record cash, disruptive change, aggressive new buyers, and rising valuations are making this the best time to sell in a decade. Many owners are taking advantage–but are you ready? What are the trends and valuations you need to know? What is the process to achieve an optimal outcome? How do you keep from being a deal disaster - one of the 80% that fail in self-managed M&A efforts? Learn all this and more in this live session at FinFoundHer on May 17.
