Female Founders Breakfast – July 2018
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.
