Roundtable Discussions

NaperLaunch roundtable discussions are moderated by SCORE volunteers, who have extensive business management and business mentoring experience. Business owners enjoy these interactive discussions because of the peer learning experience, which is designed to spark interactive communication. Participants take advantage of collaboration and networking opportunities as they gain significant insights on how to enhance productivity, strategic marketing and overall business success through group discussion and coaching.

SCORE/NaperLaunch Women’s Business Roundtable

Encouraging ideas together

The SCORE NaperLaunch Women’s Business Roundtable was created to elevate the presence of growth-stage women entrepreneurs from a wide range of business types by helping them develop new and relevant skills during the growth phase of their businesses.

SCORE and NaperLaunch understand the unique challenges women entrepreneurs face, and as such we have redesigned our Roundtable to meet the ever-changing needs of business owners like you.

The Roundtable meets virtually twice each month for direct learning, networking, and peer-to-peer mentoring. It’s a place to assess ideas and learn from other successful businesswomen. Our members gain access to mentorship, networking, training, and other valuable resources.

Membership is free, and any growth-stage woman entrepreneur is encouraged to join. The success of the Roundtable comes from active and consistent member participation. When deciding whether to join the Women’s Business Roundtable, we ask that you review our participation criteria:

  • You have owned a business with established clientele for at least two years
  • Your goal is to take your business to the next level
  • You want a peer group where you can share ideas, discuss strategies, and work through complex issues facing your business
  • You are available to attend virtual roundtable meetings twice per month

Very helpful in developing my business

"The Naperlaunch weekly roundtable has been very helpful to me in developing my business. There are always thoughtful and informed comments made to help other business owners with issues that may be common to everyone. I always learn something and meet somebody new. The discussions are well moderated.

"I participated in the Business Model course through NaperLaunch Academy. The most helpful activities from that experience were the potential client interviews and fellow business owners sharing their own struggles and ideas with each other."
