December 16 (In-Person at the Commerce Club) – Lara Hodgson
Connect the dots between your leadership journey and the lessons learned in Lara’s 15-year entrepreneurial journey. Her story is one of resilience to the forces that conspire to keep small businesses small and to shake leadership confidence. During this journey, Lara cofounded Nourish, a patented children’s product, and Insomnia, LLC, a firm specializing in investment, development, and management of complex and innovative “world-changing” projects with Stacey Abrams. Her product experience includes Dunk, a performance footwear and apparel manufacturing/retail company built on the concept of mass customization and founded with Shaquille O’Neal & Mike Piazza, where she served as Executive Vice President. Learn how this Aerospace Engineer from Georgia Institute of Technology and Harvard Business School graduate engineered the pain points of entrepreneurship into highly useful solutions by founding Now®, featuring NowAccount®, an invoice payment solution that redefines how and when businesses get paid. Today, she serves as its President & CEO. We are excited to make her book, “Level Up” available at the event and that Lara will be signing all books purchased.
