After a long time, we decided to have a HEN meet-up last Friday in Bangalore. The learnings over the past meetings made us decide to hold the meeting at a Conference room of a Business Center. After checking in half-dozen spaces, we zeroed in on Golden Square Serviced Offices at Madiwala.There were 9 of us who assembled there: Aparna Vedapuri Singhof Women’s Web, Tanushree Nair of Karaashilp, Babita Jaishankarof BAJA, Geetha Krishnan of The Fragrant Kitchen, Urmila Patil &Sucheta Saha of the QVI Club, Kanika Jain Gupta of Iktara, Shruti- a wannabe entrepreneur and yours truly (Gita Ramanan).
We had a fantastically engaging meet and started out with introducing each other’s businesses and sharing one success story and one challenge. After a round that put everyone at ease, and debunked the myth that women entrepreneurs do NOT exchange cards (we did!!), we decided to tackle the bull by the horns and addressed each challenge in turn.
Every Entrepreneur had much to share and much to gain!! In the break, we feasted on goodies from The Fragrant Kitchen… amazing sandwitches and a yumm…ieeee Banana cake. Guys check out Geetha’s offerings!! She opens her new cafe in JUNE at Hennur!!
We closed the meetings with several takeaways on our own business because of the frank dialogue and genuine attempt of everyone’s to share and learn. More on each as the week goes on.
Ruche M Mittal…you were sorely missed… guys, please update all details of the event so Ruche is kept in the loop. …..and Ruche…very sorry about missing the pictures. Was so involved in the meet that i missed that one!! So a collage of all the lovely ladies present…missing you Shruthi… please ‘friend’ me…couldn’t find you on FB. Apologies.
Loved meeting all the energetic women and looking forward to connecting and sharing on a larger scale next time!!!
