Upcoming Events

November Monthly Meeting

We are delighted to welcome back Giacomo ‘Peldi’ Guilizzoni as our speaker for the November Monthly Meeting, scheduled to take place this Thursday, November 20th. Peldi is the founder and CEO of Balsamiq, a software company that dominates its niche globally but acts like a small artisanal old-school Italian business. His talk will be entitled Start your own thing: becoming a woman entrepreneur in Italy. The meeting will be held in the Aula Magna of Centro delle Donne (Via del Piombo, 5) with social greetings starting at 7:15pm and the speaker beginning promptly at 8pm. The presentation will be followed by a no-host aperitivo at Osteria La Fontana (Via Fondazza, 83).

December Social Event

Mark your calendars for the December Social Event, scheduled to take place on Friday, December 12th. Stay tuned for additional details.
