F*it: Hard-Learned Lessons from Female Entrepreneurs
Worn|February 26, 2015
On Wednesday night digital agency Worn hosted the first F*it event series featuring a lineup of DC-based female entrepreneurs sharing candid, heartfelt, and often hilarious stories of the challenges they’ve faced on the journey to building their businesses. Nicole Aguirre, CEO of Worn, Sara Polon, founder of Soupergirl, Jennifer Ngai and Shizu Oskua, co-founders of JRINK, Rachael Glaws, founder of RGI Events, and Komal Kushalraj founder of NUMARI took the stage one at a time, telling stories and answering questions from the audience on topics as varied as the importance of a staffing plan, when to listen and when to ignore criticism, and how to handle sexism with defiance and class.
