Did you know that nearly 1 in every 3 entrepreneurs leading established businesses is a woman? Furthermore, when it comes to start-up activity, there are 80 women for every 100 men, showcasing a significant presence of female entrepreneurs in the business landscape. Remarkably, the United States has emerged as a global leader in supporting female entrepreneurship, scoring 69.9 index points.

Now, let's delve deeper into the local landscape.

How challenging or straightforward is it to kickstart a business as a woman in the Lake Geneva region?

What hurdles must be overcome, and what experiences have shaped your journey?

Our guest speaker is Judith Fuhrmann, author of 'Inspirations from Abroad for a Happier Life at Home,’ and a researcher with a Ph.D. in Development Studies. Judith has worked and lived across the world, including Germany, the U.S., Mexico, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, India, China, and Japan.

Since becoming a mom, she’s been on a quest to explore tools and techniques that can bring more joy, meaning, and lightheartedness to women juggling child-raising joys and responsibilities with career and personal aspirations. Her techniques, based on Positive Psychology theories and tools, have brought more joy to busy moms worldwide.

We invite you to join us for an insightful discussion among like-minded women. Let's share our experiences, learn from each other's successes and setbacks, and collectively grow. Together, let's empower and inspire!
