Nevertheless – First Session

Nevertheless, a Business Sisterhood, was nothing short of an amazing business and connection gaining experience for the women who participated in the first program at Innovation Connector. Nevertheless is an opportunity for women business owners to connect and meet with other women entrepreneurs to discuss their experiences and learn from each other. These successful women met every other week to learn, challenge and share with one another.

While at Nevertheless, the women were not only able to share their goals and successes but their stresses and frustrations with women who may have the same experiences. It was an opportunity to listen to other professionals share about their business, branding, the enneagram and much more. The sisterhood met at the Innovation Connector but also had meetings at Rosebud Coffee House and Re/Max in Yorktown.

The first Nevertheless recently ended and there is no doubt the next group of women will benefit from participating in this experience.  Since the first session ended, the group has already met again to have a cooking demonstration and looks to continue to meet as a group once a month to maintain those relationships created in Nevertheless. We are looking forward to the future of Nevertheless, A Business Sisterhood, at Innovation Connector.
