The WomenUpFront Roundtable provides a learning forum for owners to get “out of the weeds” of the day-to-day and look at their businesses more purposefully and strategically. The objective of the Roundtable is to help accelerate women entrepreneurs to transition their businesses to the next level and place their companies in a better strategic position to access new opportunities and continue to prosper. The Roundtable offers a curriculum designed for the small business owner and will begin in September.

For more information on WomenUpFront and membership criteria please contact Cathy Crosky at or call 413-822-1263.
