Wendy Romeu Represents Florida in Women’s Entrepreneurship Roundtable in Washington, D.C.

On Tuesday, September 24th, Wendy Romeu, Alluvionic President & CEO, participated in the Center for American Entrepreneurship’s (CAE) Women’s Entrepreneurship Roundtable hosted by the Senate Entrepreneurship Caucus in Washington, D.C.  The event was co-hosted by Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tim Scott, and was moderated by Wendy Guillies, President & CEO of Ewing Marion Kauffmann Foundation. The roundtable, made up of 22 remarkable women founders from across the United States, discussed the issues, challenges, and obstacles experienced by women entrepreneurs.

In recent years, 17 percent of new businesses were launched by women.  The purpose of the Caucus is to bring organization, coherence, and consensus to a multi-issue agenda like entrepreneurship.  The CAE seeks to close the gap between male and female entrepreneurship, which requires evidence-based understanding of why the disparity exists.  This historical event was an important first step towards revitalizing American entrepreneurship, and understanding the obstacles that women entrepreneurs are facing.
