The startup rate of women-owned businesses is soaring -- it’s 50% higher than businesses in general. But the percentage of women who break through the glass ceiling to more than a million dollar is more than 50% lower than businesses in general. What’s blocking their upward momentum? Learn how women leaders of growth businesses kept growing, well beyond the million-dollar milestone

Drawn from interviews with leading women entrepreneurs and her work as a mentor and coach to start-up and growth businesses, Geri Stengel will pinpoint what women need to break through the glass ceiling and keep their businesses on a high-growth track.
