SMU will present Susanne Althoff, associate professor at Emerson College in Boston and former editor-in-chief of The Boston Globe Magazine, to discuss her recently released book, Launching While Female: Smashing the System That Holds Women Entrepreneurs Back.

Althoff interviewed more than 100 founders from across the country to investigate the obstacles women and nonbinary entrepreneurs, especially those of color, face when launching, funding, and growing their companies. According to a 2021 study, Dallas-Fort Worth ranks among the top entrepreneurship environments in the U.S. Women show an intense interest in entrepreneurial ventures, yet they face a number of obstacles. This talk will explore these obstacles and offer real solutions, and is suitable for a diverse audience.
