Entrepreneur's Circle: Social Entrepreneurship and The Future of Female Leadership with Nilima Achwal


Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community.

The Female Founders Lab, founded by Nilima Achwal, was created on the conviction that its’ female visionaries will create the next set of companies, big and small, that disrupt our systems and current ways of operating - and that all companies will have to be social ventures in 20 years. 

How can we change the destructive trajectory that our world is on, in order to create and scale conscious, heart-centered companies that positively impact humanity? 

The answer is a confluence of three things:

  • A shift from simply being a leader or business-owner to being a conscious, heart-centered leader. This requires leaders to heal themselves, hold a grand vision, and rise to meet those challenges (which requires deep coaching and doing the inner work, which many women leaders are already undertaking.)

  • A shift from business-as-usual to building what the world needs. Right now, many businesses are creating “an impact”, but what does it mean to change a system? It requires coordinating many stakeholders and winning hearts and minds toward a longer trajectory. 

  • Letting conscious and embodied women leaders rise to the occasion and create the shift - and for male leaders to allow the feminine wisdom to touch their hearts and leadership as well.

This event will touch on these aspects and how every leader and creator can harness her feminine wisdom and potential in creating true, meaningful change with her work. 

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
