Smart & hosts first virtual event in the f2 Female Founder series featuring experts in relaxation, financial resilience and refreshment!

On Thursday, June 18, 2020, Smart & Biggar hosted the first virtual event in the f2 Female Founder series, dubbed “(R&R) 2 with f2” offering guests an opportunity to connect, learn and unwind. Launched one year ago in the summer of 2019, f2 Female Founders is focused on bringing together female entrepreneurs in the Ottawa community for learning, professional growth and networking.

Hosted by Ottawa senior associate Jamie-Lynn Kraft, the event provided guests with an interactive virtual experience, featuring a panel of female experts in their respective fields, explored elements of relaxation, educational resources for financial resilience, a signature cocktail refreshment. The event also provided an opportunity for guests to build relationships through virtual breakout rooms.

We have compiled series of short videos featuring each of our guest experts.

We hope you enjoy the videos and hope to see you (virtually or in person) at the next f2 event.
