    I’m an entrepreneur with an ecommerce business that I haven’t fully launched because of lack of access to capital, planning a kickstarter campaign, and could really benefit from the support of a mentor that’s business minded and/or in the food industry.

    Portland, Oregon! What a magical place to host such an exciting event that reaches the minds of diversity and uniqueness. It would be an honor to be awarded a seat for this event where my smile and kindness will radiate along with all the powerful women attending. Even shyness and intimidation shouldn’t be my set back when facing new people and gaining new wisdom graciously being shared.
