Athena Entrepreneurs Weekly Meetups with Liz Eddy on How to Navigate the Challenges of Building a Social Enterprise
Drop by the next Athena Entrepreneurs meetup on Thursday, November 18 to connect with other students interested in entrepreneurship, receive support with your own ideas, and hear first-hand about how to build and scale a social enterprise. We’ll be joined by Liz Eddy, CEO and Co-Founder of Lantern, a venture backed public benefit corporation that’s changing the way we talk about and manage end of life and death. Liz will share insights from her experience building companies that tackle taboo topics, ranging from her first social venture at age 15 to early-stage startups, such as DoSomething.org and Crisis Text Line.
Open to aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia (current students). No RSVP is required!
Athena Entrepreneurs is a community of aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia who gather regularly to further develop their ideas. We believe entrepreneurship is a powerful way to make change in the world. Here, you’ll find space to meet collaborators, work together and get support, and make the kind of impact you want to make.
- Work on your ventures — or just learn more about entrepreneurship. Athena’s Director of Applied Learning & Entrepreneurship and Athena’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence are here to help.
- Connect with our guests — experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and more — who drop by to share tips and insights from their own entrepreneurial journey and stick around afterward for one-on-one conversations with students. Visit our website to see who our fall 2021 guests are.
No registration is required, so drop by for one or all — it’s up to you!
