LOWELL, MA — On Thursday, March 29th, close to 100 attendees gathered at Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) headquarters for their inaugural Women’s History Month event: Women in Entrepreneurship: Fueling Business Growth.
The expert panel included:
Gail Goodman, Founding CEO of Constant Contact and EforAll Board Member
Laurin Mills, Founder & CEO of the Dinner Daily, EforAll alum
Ani Vong, Owner of Humanity Boutique
Partners for the event included: Lowell Women’s Week, the Center for Women and Work at UMass Lowell, the City of Lowell’s Office of Economic Development, and Mogul Inc.
In an industry often lacking inclusion, the organization prides itself on the fact that 73% of their entrepreneurs are women, 52% immigrants and 57% are minorities. Also, three out of five entrepreneurs that enter EforAll’s accelerator program were previously unemployed.

– Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) – EforAll accelerates economic and social impact through inclusive entrepreneurship in mid-sized cities. EforAll believes that the best way to revitalize mid- sized U.S. cities that have fallen into decline, and suffer related high rates of poverty and unemployment, is to fuel the dreams and ambitions of entrepreneurs who live in and near these cities. We believe that they understand their city and its problems better than anyone else and have ideas and solutions with the potential to make their city prosper once again while they create their own pathway out of poverty.
