Liz Sara: Women Entrepreneurship and the Pandemic

Women entrepreneurs and business owners, and the pandemic. For insight, we turned to an expert in the field, Elizabeth (Liz) Sara. Liz currently serves as the Chairperson of the National Women’s Business Council, having been nominated for the position by President Trump in 2018.

The Council is a non-partisan federal advisory committee serving as an independent source of advice and policy recommendations to the President, the U.S. Congress and to the Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration on issues of importance to women business owners and entrepreneurs.

Liza has over 25 years in the local high-tech community as an entrepreneur, business leader, angel investor and arts advocate. She founded Best Marketing, LLC in 2001, providing early-stage software companies with strategic marketing, PR and business development services.

‘We’re seeing a lot of women angel investor groups cropping up all around the country. It’s about women who would like to invest in other women.’ 

A very informative conversation with Liz:

  • The start of women entrepreneurs
  • Women Angel Investors
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • ‘Kitchen table-based’ businesses and solopreneurs
  • The importance of a financial literacy
  • Women and STEM
  • Taking the leap
  • Finding the available resources
  • Growth and financial aspirations
