Business Bestie Speed Networking at Studio G Chicago

This Past weekend our founder Covania Washington produced a networking event alongside fashion stylist, Danielle Vonkeller titled 'Business Bestie Speed Networking' at Studio G Chicago. We also had the pleasure of having an amazing panel of entrepreneurs from Chicago including Resa B. Luster of Luster Products and founders of Rare Vodka Kim and Tonesha.


The event was filled with food, cocktails, conversation and endless connections. This was truly a moment for women entrepreneurs from Chicago to learn how to start a business, grow their business and the importance of having a "Business Bestie" or business partner.


When guest arrived each person had to sign in and everyone was encouraged to mingle before the start of our panel discussion. After the informative and motivating panel was an hour session of speed networking. Each participant had three minutes to get the know the person in front of them before switching to a new Business Bestie. Following the end of the fun and interactive networking session, everyone had the chance to follow up with who they enjoyed speaking with the most. This was done in the form of exchanging business cards, contact information etc.


The goal of the event was to create an opportunity for everyone in attendance to be inspired to boss up and make new connections, and the response we had was off the charts!


Thanks so much for everyone who attended and a special thanks to our sponsors: Luster Products, Rare Vodka, Cakes of Praise, and Studio G Chicago.

Until then, remember to create the life your love and live Bomb and Bossy!

Bomb and Bossy Business: Studio G is a Women only Coworking Space Providing Resources for Chicago Girl Bosses

Coworking spaces are becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is typically to provide a space for start up entrepreneurs to get work done without the hustle and bustle of a cafe. That's also apart of the mission for Studio G, a women only coworking space on the south side of Chicago. 

This past weekend Bomb and Bossy had the pleasure of attending Studio G's press party during their free coworking week where ZhaZha Cassanova is the founder.

In an Interview with CBS Local Cassanova stated " We are ready to speak up for ourselves, we are being unapologetically ourselves." CBS Local also called it a "Boys club of business." After spending the day there we can definitely agree with both statements.


There was plenty of networking going on between Girl Bosses who own businesses or who are inspiring to own a business.

This event provided women across the city of Chicago the opportunity to mingle and make new connections. There was also a very inspiring panel discussion where speakers spoke on business, finances, and dealing with work life balance as an entrepreneur.


From left to right, we heard from Gabriela Garcia founder of Modern Brown Girl, Makeda Smith of CEO Chicks, Kristin Anderson of Merrill Lynch, and ZhaZha Casanova founder of Studio G and moderator of the event. 


We can most certainly see Studio G disrupting the coworking industry in the coming years! At a time where entrepreneurship is on the rise Casanova saw there was a need for this space in Chicago.

Bomb and Bossy will like to salute the Studio G team for creating a space for women to get work done while also having support from other women. 


This is something that is most certainly needed within our communities and we encourage our readers to become a member.

The benefits are having a personal workspace, support from fellow girl bosses, bomb ass wifi, happy hour on Friday's plus more. Who doesn't love all of that?
