Supper Club: Business Challenges Facing Women

Recent research has shown that women led startup companies are less likely to fail than companies started by men–and also bring in higher revenues. However, women who start businesses receive only a small portion of available venture capital funds.

For this week’s Supper Club, Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan sat down with three women who started companies in Bend to talk about the challenges that female founders and CEO’s often face.

Thanks to Talena Barker, CEO and founder of Mission Limelight, Julie Burket co-owner and administrator of Right at Home, and Jamie Danek, CEO and co-founder of Humm Kombucha for joining us. A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsors, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region every Tuesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
