4th Annual Women Entrepreneur Panel on Risk in Entrepreneurship – Real and Perceived

Mar 11, 2020

SpringFour Founder and CEO, Rochelle Gorey, recently had the privilege to speak at the 4th Annual Women Entrepreneur Panel on Risk in Entrepreneurship – Real and Perceived. Co-hosted with BMO Harris Wealth Management and Kellogg Executive Women’s Network, it was an excellent opportunity for Rochelle to share her founder’s story, and the benefits of stepping outside of what makes you feel comfortable, embracing risk, and doing what you believe in.

Rochelle shared the stage with Moderator Linda Darragh, Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurial Practice at Kellogg, Jennifer Fried, CEO and Co-Founder of Explorer Surgical, and Dana Wright, Managing Director of MATH Venture Partners. Each woman shared their insight on their perceptions of risk and how it impacts the management of their business.  Lots of great stories were shared and insight gained with an engaging Q&A session with the audience of Kellogg alumni and BMO employees and clients. It was an inspiring evening, and Rochelle was delighted to be a part of it.  The event was made even more memorable as Rochelle’s two daughters were in the audience to hear their Mom and the other entrepreneurial women share their stories.
