Event description
Aspiring Women are collaborating with Harrow Council to bring you an evening of networking and discussions with inspirational entrepreneurs.

About this Event

Join us at the official launch of The Aspiring Women platform in collaboration with Harrow Council. We are inviting you to Aspiring Women Talks which will bring you inspiring stories from female entrepreneurs, seasoned business mentors and members of Harrow Council about the realities of running your own business.

We will be hosting an exciting panel discussion where our panelists from a range of backgrounds will share their raw accounts of being at the coal face of business; the highs, the lows, the challenges and how they overcome them.

Attendees will also get the chance to participate in a live pitching session where they get the chance to present their business in a brief elevator pitch to the audience. This is a great way to practice your pitching skills if you’re about to meet potential investors.

If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, we also have a very special headline guest in attendance!

We are thrilled to announce Rachael Corson, co-founder of leading natural hair brand Afrocenchix will be in conversation with our host, marketing entrepreneur Letitiah Obiri from Polkadot Digital.

Afrocenchix has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2009. Last year it was crowned winner of the WeWork Global Creator Award and in total it won a massive $530,000k after pitching to a celebrity panel of judges including Ashton Kutcher, P.Diddy and Gary Vaynerchuk. Rachael will be sharing her incredible business journey and how she managed to achieve such huge success whilst raising a young family.

She will also be on hand to announce the winner of our Aspiring Women competition where one lucky recipient will walk away with an essential business startup package featuring special discounts and offers from our partners.

Aspiring Women Talks promises to be a fantastic evening of engaging conversation, fun networking opportunities and exclusive competition giveaways. Meet other female entrepreneurs and gain candid advice on how to run a successful business.
