Ladies Who LaUNCH is a luncheon series to empower our women entrepreneurs, innovators, or any women that want to create a lasting impact in our society. It is up to us ladies to support and encourage other women in entrepreneurship. If we are going to turn some of these rattling statistics on their head (…like only 2% of venture-backed companies are women-led…), we must do it together.

The first 25 minutes will be dedicated to reviewing the speaker’s background and learnings/tips around the topic, followed by audience Q&A.

*This event is open only to Rice University students and alumni
