Find Your Own Answers: A powerful tool for authentic living and leadership


In our culture, women are encouraged to seek external resources, mentors, and people who can give us advice.What if instead, we knew how to consistently and confidently turn to ourselves for guidance - to find our own right answers? Please join Network of Executive Women: Pacific Northwest for a workshop with women's leadership coach, Gretchen Remmers. You will learn a way to access your own rock-solid knowing, again and again, to make difficult decisions, navigate challenges, and develop a unique, grounded vision for your career and your life.

How Startup Valuation Works

Many entrepreneurs struggle with having the “valuation” discussion with investors. Given that many startups have no revenue, much less profits, well established quantitative methods simply do not work well. All too often, it feels to the entrepreneur that valuations are just being pulled out of thin air. Join Yi-Jian Ngo from the Alliance of Angels for an interactive workshop on startup valuation. We will walk through some practical guidelines and three specific methods that entrepreneurs can use to guide their valuation negotiations.

April 19th | 12:00 - 1:00 pm | UW Fluke Hall, 3rd floor
