.86 Project | Entrepreneurs Brunch – Chicago

12 young professional women share stories of success, lessons, struggles and goals over brunch in October 2014.

Great ideas can and will become secondary if your business lacks organization and funding. Alice Foy launched the .86 project as a method of storytelling through transparency.
