    This Meetup was amazing in many ways. Not only was the speaker panel outstanding, but the knowledge they shared in such a short amount of time, so honest and matter of fact to their audience of women entrepreneurs, was remarkable. I learned more in this session than in an entire semester of MBA class in entrepreneurship. Location, while slightly challenging to find, was impeccable. The attendees were top-notch, professional and passionate women entrepreneurs. Congratulations Alex on organizing and facilitating an amazing panel.
