Second Annual Women's Entrepreneurship Day in NH

New Hampshire’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is hosting its second annual day of community and celebration of entrepreneurship.

This event will be held on Tuesday, November 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at LaBelle Winery in Amherst. Cathy Duffy, CEO of Girls Inc., the Hannah Grimes Center of Keene, and the NH SBDC will be honored for being inspirational role models and leaders.

“I’m looking forward to honoring these recipients, as they have all made tremendous contributions to the community and have supported female entrepreneurs in their own ways,” says the newly appointed Ambassador Crystal Farley.

The day will feature dynamic keynote and panel sessions from the following speakers:

  • -  Cathy Duffy, CEO of Girls, Inc.

  • -  Meg Staples, Her Tribe Athletics

  • -  Jessica Principe, All Girls Shave Club

  • -  Renu Basur, Siddarth Services

  • -  Amy LaBelle, LaBelle Winery

  • -  Linda Johnson, McLane-Middleton

-  Cesar Arboleda, LaBelle Winery; Aaron Bagshaw, WH Bagshaw; Lyle Fulkerson,

The event will also provide the opportunity for 3-5 entrepreneurs to present their business concepts to the audience with a panel of local experts offering feedback. The winner will receive $1,000. ​

Last year’s inaugural event sold out with Governor Chris Sununu providing an official proclamation honoring Women's Entrepreneurship Day. This year, both US Senators, Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, are recognizing the event.

Business NH Magazine is a sponsor.
