It’s an opportunity to access women who have been successfully involved in business for many years,” says NEW Chairwoman Lynn R.

“Our events take place at various Louisville venues with topics ranging from how to find funding for a start-up, social media, international commerce, exporting, intellectual property, and public speaking.” Cooper added. “Each event offers a Q&A opportunity with experienced women entrepreneurs while we enjoy some wine and hors d’oeuvres.”
