Women Wednesdays is an initiative to foster a diverse and inclusive entrepreneurial culture ripe with women who enrich the community with their talents and vision, as well as benefit from the collaborative, instructional environment. The program provides free coworking on Wednesdays at Domi Station from 10AM-3PM, including an occasional Lean In Lunch & Learn speakers series and ongoing events. All are welcome each Wednesday, ladies and gents, alike. Just bring your laptop or project(s) to work alone or surrounded by others eager to see you succeed. Find more information at www.womenwednesdays.co, or contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for a conversation with our current City and County "CommisSHEners" to chart a pathway for making Tallahassee a #1City4WomenTally. What assets do we have in our city that foster success for women, or where do we need to improve? What can WE do to support the women leaders of our community, what measures and efforts can we all do to empower more women locally, and how can more of our efforts be connected for collaboration? Join us as we talk with Leon County CommisSHEners Kristin Dozier and Mary Ann Lindley, and City CommisSHEners Dianne Williams-Cox and Elaine Bryant. For more information contact email@example.com.
Presented by Robert Hodgen and Jeff Budnick - Senior Software Engineers at Kikoda in Tallahassee, FL

We're back for Fun4TallyKids' 2nd Annual Tallahassee Children's Business Fair!
Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Kids ages 6-14 develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace.
We will host an unlimited number of booths at the event at Tallahassee Museum on Saturday, May 18th from 8:30-11:30am.
Applications are due on Monday, May 6th. Applicants will be notified within one week of submitting their application whether or not they have been approved. There is no fee to enter, so only serious applicants need apply in order to avoid no-shows.
Prizes will be awarded by the guest judges in 2 categories...
- age 6-11 and age 12-14:
•Most Original Business Idea
•Best Presentation/Use of Creativity
*If there are multiple business owners at one booth, they will fall under the age category of the oldest participant.
There will be no entrance fee to the Museum during the hours of the event, so this will be truly FREE to attend by all. Be sure to invite friends and family to see your child's business in action!
Kids get to keep 100% of the money they make from their sales! Last year, most kids walked away with over $100! Something new this year... we want to promote the importance of giving back to the local community. Each child will be encouraged to choose a local charity to donate their choice of percentage of proceeds to.
A special workshop will be provided for registered kids in April so stay tuned! Offered and hosted by Domi Station, Tallahassee's own entrepreneur incubator, kids will have the chance to learn branding, digital marketing, and sales techniques from local business owners!
This event is hosted and sponsored by Fun4TallyKids.com, an online resource for families looking for things to do with and for their kids in the Tallahassee area.
