MAY EDITION OF LADYDRINKS: PITCH THE MONEY!
According to research by Google, women-led companies provide 35% higher return on investment. They are also 12% more profitable than male-led companies, which is good for the economy.
Our May Edition of LadyDrinks tees up 5 business women who are pitching their business plans for their respective enterprises to a panel of experts (branding, legal, capital) who critique them on the viability of it and valuable next steps. Its part mastermind. It's part Shark Tank. The winner gets a cash prize!
