MELBOURNE, FLA. (April 24, 2017) – weVENTURE, the Central Florida-based organization launched at Florida Institute of Technology and focused on accelerating sustainable business growth for entrepreneurs, will be hosting a special Strong Coffee, Strong Women program on May 5th from 8 – 10 a.m. at Florida Tech’s Center for Aeronautics and Innovation, 1050 W NASA Blvd., Melbourne.

Featured speakers at this event will include:

Moderated by weVENTURE Executive Director Erica Lemp, the purpose of the chat is to show attendees that you can overcome challenges (through a “Moment of Truth”), push forward and succeed in life and business. These local businesswomen will motivate, inspire and allow attendees to connect in a meaningful way.

“The ladies participating in the May 5th event all have different stories, each of them extremely inspiring,” said weVENTURE Executive Director Erica Lemp. “Many people don’t realize the importance of facing challenges, learning from those life lessons, and overcoming them. We hope to motivate entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders, and show them that no challenge is too large to overcome and learn from.”

In addition to the chat, the U.S. Small Business Administration will be in attendance to present weVENTURE with the Region IV Women’s Business Center of Excellence Award for 2017.

Tickets are $20 for the general public and $10 for students (must show student ID at the door and register for event with a valid college student email account). To register for this event, please visit http://weventure.org/programs-and-events/.
