Female Founders Breakfast – July 2018

Are you a woman at the helm of your enterprise? You may have noticed you are not alone here at the Polsky Exchange. Please join this member-driven session to convene female founders and supporters! Let’s explore how we can take our ventures to the next level with the support of fellow female founders.

This month’s discussion will be led by Natalie Tessler, a former attorney (specializing in tax law and estate planning), who left her practice to pursue a long-held dream of owning and operating a business. Using capital raised through a combination of angel investors and an SBA-backed loan, she launched Spa Space, a day spa located in Chicago’s West Loop. The business grew to become Chicago’s largest day spa, employing a staff of over 75. After 16 years of successful operations, Natalie sold Spa Space in 2017. She presently serves as Executive Director of Compass Pro Bono, a nonprofit that provides free strategic consulting services to other nonprofits.

All are welcome, regardless of gender or identity.
