About the Event
On October 21st, in collaboration with Bumble Bizz, MoxxieMade is kicking off their next Cocktails x Conversations with a focus on entrepreneurship ~ specifically honing in on the beginning before the success.

Got an idea you have been toying with? Want to dive in on project but not sure where to begin? Want to take your business to the next level? Or simply want to soak up some mentorship from some bad-ass, brilliant women?

Then, this panel is for you. Join us in a rooted, raw, and real discussion with some of the city’s most bad-ass go-getters as we chat the real story behind their accomplishments - celebrating the good parts but also finding the wisdom in their challenges.

You will love this if you want - 
• To get inspired and encouraged 
• Learn more about entrepreneurship and gain practical advice from women who have been there
• Meet new and like-minded women in the city
• Gain a little knowledge and hear some real talk on different women's journeys
• Mix n' mingle while enjoying wine and delicious from some of our favorite female owned brands
• Nab giveaways from Bumble, The Sill, Golde, Bonberi, Hum, and more
