About this Event
If you’re an entrepreneur, or an aspiring entrepreneur—this event is especially for you. We’ll be introducing our new partners and entrepreneurs, sharing our BIG plans for 2020 and learning from our feature speaker: business innovation and investment specialist, Andrea Drager.
With over 10 years’ experience in strategy and project management, Andrea Drager’s passion is to help businesses grow. After founding Vesper Faering, an online retail brand for frequent travelers, Andrea became an investor at Azure Capital Partners where she evaluates investment opportunities across Canada in post-seed and early stage technology companies.
Andrea brings an entrepreneurial mindset to new business opportunities and has experience across multiple cultural settings having worked in Canada, the U.S., Europe, Africa and Latin America.
Our last event brought over 150 inspiring women (and men!) together, and we can’t wait to reconnect with our community. Tell us about your 2019 triumphs, your 2020 goals, and ask us your questions!
Date: February 19th, 2020
Place: Venue 308
Doors open at 4:00pm where you’ll be greeted with drinks and snacks. Our programme will begin at 5:00pm sharp and end at 6:30pm, leaving plenty of time for networking until 7pm.
The51 believes that value creation by women, for women, constitutes the next economic wave in Alberta, but this is just the start. As we sit on the cusp of this economic transformation, all of us must band together to fund the female-led businesses we admire. Let us take a leap into entrepreneurship by founding a business, work side by side with a woman on her business, or provide mentoring, valuable business connections and yes — buy their products and services. Every effort in this direction builds the financial feminism movement, and future we want.
The51 is a movement. We are designed to inform and support this shifting economy, but we can’t do it without you. So, bring a friend to the event, share this event on your social media, and participate in community building by bringing your questions and enthusiasm for these powerful Canadian women.
