Yesterday I arrived in Santa Clara, California to join 150 women entrepreneurs for BlogHer | bet ’11, March 24-25th. Armed with an idea, 100 business savvy women will be paired with one of 50 accomplished female mentors to be coached and advised on how to turn their entrepreneurial idea into a successful business. The networking began with an evening cocktail reception at Cisco TelePresence Center (demo feature in image) and will be followed by a day of conversation, coaching, and collaboration at the Microsoft Conference Center.
Mentors include notable women such as Analisa Balares, CEO and founder of Womensphere; Kaliya Hamlin, founder of She’s Geeky; Sandy Jen, co-founder of Meebo; Allyson Kapin founder of WomenWhoTech; and many, many more. BlogHer co-founder, Lisa Stone, will be in attendance. You might remember her from our entertaining Go Granny video with Cloris Leachman, advising viewers to “get serious” about their business.
