Little Pink Book Announces its 2nd Annual Spring Into Ownership Event Series
ATLANTA, May 4, 2011—For the second consecutive year, LittlePINKBook.com announces its Spring Into Ownership Event Series, celebrating women business owners and their entrepreneurial spirit. This year, Spring Into Ownership has expanded to three cities, featuring prominent and diverse women owners on lunch panels in Atlanta on June 13 (where there will also be breakout sessions), Los Angeles on June 2 and New York City on June 17.
Hundreds of career women attend these events to network and hear success secrets from women owners on topics like growing their business in this unpredictable economic climate, creatively breaking through the more traditional structures and processes currently in place and finding courage to do what they love. This year’s sponsors and supporters include Porsche, ServCorp, Smirnoff Premium Mixed Malt Drinks, FedEx, Jackson Lewis and Microsoft. "We are proud to join forces with Little PINK Book to celebrate women in business," says Servcorp’s VP/General Manager USA Jennifer Goodwyn.
Majority woman-owned firms now account for 29 percent of all enterprises. The number of these firms grew by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, compared to a 25 percent increase in male owned firms. However, fewer than 2 percent of woman-owned firms hit $1M in annual revenue.
Speakers featured on the panels include:
• Kathy Adams, co-founder, Accord Services
• Karen Trilevsky, founder and CEO, FullBloom Baking Co.
• Kathleen King, founder, Tate's Bake Shop
• Rebecca Blumenstein, deputy managing editor, Wall Street Journal
• Mary Moore, founder and CEO, The Cook’s Warehouse
• Celeste Gudas, founder and CEO, 24 Seven Inc.
• Susan Nethero, owner, Intimacy
