The Hidden Power of Female Entrepreneurship with Lisa Ann Pinkerton @ Rev: Ithaca Startup Works | Ithaca | New York | United States

Rev: Ithaca Startup Works and the Cornell Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise are pleased to present this opening lecture to the Cornell Business Impact Symposium, on Friday, March 24 at Rev: Ithaca Startup Works, from women’s entrepreneurship and cleantech leader Lisa Ann Pinkerton!
Starting from day one, female entrepreneurs discover that while their way of going about business may not look like the traditional method, it can be just as effective, even more so. By embracing their natural management styles, setting their own corporate culture, and leading by example, women are showing the world that their way of doing business is the future of commerce for the 21st Century.

In this presentation, founder and President of Technica Communications and Founder and Chairwoman of Women in Cleantech & Sustainability, Lisa Ann Pinkerton will connect the dots surrounding why businesses led by women deliver higher revenues and stronger returns for investors than more traditionally run businesses and how both genders can embrace their feminine leadership styles to thrive throughout their careers.
