NEW YORK: May 23—It’s an exciting time for women to start up their own businesses. The internet and social media have changed everything about promotion and marketing. But getting a successful business launched is still challenging. How about picking up a few secrets from those who know?
92nd Street Y and Glamour present a panel discussion with a group of innovative women entrepreneurs. Dylan Lauren re-imagined the candy story, Iman saw that women of color wanted high quality cosmetics and fragrances, Piera Gelardi created a community around online fashion and shopping and Elizabeth Cutler presented indoor bicycling in an entirely new way .
