The 2019 Norfolk State University talk-event was assembled to address topics related to female entrepreneurship spearheaded by women of color. Topics addressed were: Gaining access to capital, building confidence and overcoming fears, developing a strong referral network, locating mentors, balancing business and family, personal branding, and being a role model. The beautifully enrich- ing forum was moderated by media host and social influencer, Maleena Lawrence.
