“Our community is stronger when we all come together to make a difference. The contributions of women in our community cannot be overstated, though too often are underappreciated. At VyStar, we are proud to recognize and celebrate the efforts and achievements of women in our community. We still have work to do and should all strive to follow their lead.” said Brian E. Wolfburg, President and CEO VyStar Credit Union.
In addition to these industry thought leaders, F3 will feature the first-of-its-kind Female Founders Shark Tank, where the five women founders will compete in front of a live audience for a possible venture capital investment of $250,000.
The event also features over 20 local women-owned companies that will showcase their products and services throughout the conference.
