Spreadsheets and sippy cups, pitches and potties, term sheets and tantrums… managing a startup can be all-consuming, so how the heck do you do it when you also have a family to manage? On the heels of Mother’s Day, hear from moms in the trenches who are learning to master the ‘Daily Juggle.’ They will share their challenges, their victories, and their tips for those who dare to try to ‘have it all.’
As always, the program will be preceded by time for networking and will include free appetizers and pizza. Registration begins at 5:15 p.m.
Cost: $10 for OEN members; $20 for non-members. *Sorry, no refunds.*
