01 Oct Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs
Today not only marks the beginning of October (and hopefully cooler weather) but it also signals the start of #WEDallas, a month long celebration of women entrepreneurs hosted by The Dallas Entrepreneur Center (The DEC). I chatted with Lauren Zeien, VP of Programming for The DEC to learn more about this new initiative.
Last Spring, The DEC hosted some programming geared especially for women entrepreneurs. Is #WEDallas a continuation of those efforts?
When we first realized the need for #WEDallas we thought maybe 50 -100 women would sign up, we had 500 women sign up for our one day program. That immediately said to us, this is way more then we thought. From there we built out extensions of this program like Startup Weekend: Women’s Edition and additional #WEDallas one off events. Now, the timing is right and the community is asking for something bigger. Alas, #Wedallas month is born.
