We are so grateful to the women, many speaking at today's conference, who continue to raise glass ceilings and inspire new generations. It is NowStreet’s sincere hope that events like this empower more women to launch businesses and embark on careers in finance.

  3. 3. DEDICATION “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ― ANNE FRANK, WRITER“Today’s event is dedicated to a true inspiration whose impact on the world was not measured by the dollars she earned or by the career milestones she passed. Rather, her success was defined by her steadfast resolve, her courage to question and her will to seek answers. She possessed an extraordinary ability to find hope through adversity and seize strength in times of uncertainty. During an age when women were subservient, she exuded independence. She proved that you didn’t need an abundance of wealth, testosterone or even a youthful mind and body to put your dreams into action, as many of hers were fulfilled in her later years. After being hampered in her youth, she went on to put herself through college in her sixties and travel the world in her seventies.This remarkable woman was my Grandma Annie (1917 – 2011). Although she never invented or funded a world-changing product, she motivated me to work hard, value knowledge and persevere. Most importantly, she inspired me to follow my dreams – no matter how far out of grasp they were. Had it not been for her admirable example of fortitude, we wouldn’t be gathered here today and potentially forming that one magical connection culminating in the next earth-altering invention. So perhaps in some grand universal plan, through the visionaries assembled in this room, Ann Rosenberg leaves her true mark on the world.” – Dara Albright, Event Producer
