Considering the business challenges entrepreneurs have faced this year, I wanted this event to go on”
— Renée Deluca Dolan, President and Founder of Contempo
CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2020 / -- The event, now in its ninth year, regularly draws more than 400 of the region’s most dynamic and forward-thinking female entrepreneurs for a day-long schedule of speakers, panel discussions, exhibitions and networking opportunities. The 2020 event will be adapted for COVID-19 restrictions.

“Considering the business challenges entrepreneurs have faced this year, I wanted this event to go on” said Renée DeLuca Dolan, president and founder of Contempo Design _ Communications and the creator of the Female Entrepreneur Summit. “Our speakers were secured, and the agenda had been planned. It made sense to adapt for the times and create the most interactive virtual event we could.”

The Female Entrepreneur Summit will run 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and include keynote speakers, interactive networking via chat rooms and virtual meeting spaces, and an exhibitor showcase that will enable direct conversation. Attendees will glean advice and inspiration from more than 20 successful women business owners from the Cleveland area and beyond.

The ticket price has been lowered this year, making the event accessible to entrepreneurs who might be impacted by the COVID-19 economic fallout.

Programs and topics will focus on leadership development, marketing and sales strategies, HR compliance and work-life integration, among others.

Using virtual technology DeLuca Dolan intends to create an event that feels authentic and builds connections. “We’re creating a live-streamed show with interactive features so attendees can meet each other, browse products and services, and network for camaraderie or leads.”
