About This Event

With the Jessica Vollman Foundation, we’re excited to bring together a panel of women founders to speak on the topic of expanding your business internationally and its effects on women in entrepreneurship. We'll leave time in the end for audience questions. Of course, though the event supports women in business, we welcome everyone and anyone regardless of their background and identities.

Additionally, JVF is honored to announce a sponsorship opportunity for passionate women entrepreneurs in the NYC area looking to gain skills to take their business to the next level. RSVP and stay tuned for more information!
