Entrepreneur's Circle: Let the Community Drive You!

 Talia Laird Photography (from Oconomowoc, Wisconin) photographed this Breast Express event at Authentic Birth Center, in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The event was sponsored by Pumpspotting and featured their giant breastfeeding RV. This wonderful event brough together local breastfeeding moms and Milwaukee area breastfeeding resources to create a community around breastfeeding.

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. This month, we welcome Amy VanHaren, Founder & CEO of pumpspotting.

The journey of a startup is filled with questions about where to go. The answer isn’t knowing the exact way forward, but rather, knowing exactly who you serve. An amazing thing happens when you ask the community for help: they direct you. This is the story of a Founder who took her app on the road in a 40-foot Breast Express RV and found true north by uniting mothers online and in person.

Key Takeaways:

  • The value in following what nourishes you.

  • How to bring a vision to life to benefit others.

  • How listening to your community can help shape your business.

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!
