Mentoring Round-Tables

The Women’s Round-Tables is a peer-to-peer networking opportunity for women to learn about business culture from other successful women entrepreneurs. Participants gain a forum to share ideas, best practices, and success stories. The Round-Table groups discuss topics concerning procurement, financial resources, marketing, and access to capital.

We have Round-Tables in two locations:

• Louisville Round-Table – every fourth Friday

• Lexington Round-Table – quarterly
