Los Angeles Women’s Entrepreneurs Meetup (LAWEM) presents "Hotseat": An Intimate Evening of Women Entrepreneurs.

As much as we all love the big, splash events, "Hotseat" is LAWEM's more intimate, mastermind-style event where our community gets a chance to come together, introduce ourselves, ask for opinions and help, and share resources.

"Hotseat" is where LAWEM started, giving women entrepreneurs a chance to come together and help each other out.  Whether you're working on a new idea and need opinions, growing your startup and need resources, or just like to chat about business challenges, "Hotseat" has always been a favorite of our members.

So come join us for a relaxed, intimate evening with your fellow entrepreneurs. This is where the magic happens!
