Law & Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series

Image module

The Law and Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series 2023 is a virtual speaker series that explores the intersection of law and entrepreneurship by engaging in a dialogue with Small Business Enterprises (SMEs) to unpack their relationship with the law and their lawyers in the innovation economy.

It also aims to help lawyers and law students understand the needs of SMEs in order to develop a client-centred approach while helping SMEs understand the value lawyers add to their businesses. The series is part of the SpeakHER series launched by EPICentre in January 2022 to highlight the challenges and obstacles faced by women entrepreneurs and their resilience and perseverance in launching and growing their businesses.

The Law and Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series 2023 is a partnership between EPICentre and Professor Myra Tawfik, Don Rodzik Family Chair in Law and Entrepreneurship.

The objectives of the Law and Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series are:

  • To empower the entrepreneurial community and entrepreneurial students in their understanding of the laws that affect them and their engagements with lawyers;
  • To highlight emerging legal issues and trends as identified by women entrepreneurs in the innovation economy;
  • To break down systemic barriers for women in or with an interest in entrepreneurship to ensure full participation in the innovation economy;
  • To provide value to our speakers and audience by providing an open platform for networking and communication during each webinar; and
  • To foster new connections!

 

This series is free for participants to attend!
