Bring your idea or your curiosity to the next What's Possible Workshop, "Startups for Good", and learn the fundamentals of social entrepreneurship. We'll be joined by female founders and other leaders in the startup world to take our ideas to the next level to help get them ready to launch into the world.
In this workshop, you'll get to dive into the world of business planning! We'll help you figure out:
