A new network for women entrepreneurs

As Fulton resident Jennifer Halcrow developed her new consulting business, she relied on a full Rolodex of people for advice on everything from insurance to marketing. When a friend considered opening a food truck, Halcrow instantly knew six people she should contact.

Corvus“I didn’t realize it until I looked back — a lot of women business owners gave me so much,” she said.

Now Halcrow wants to give back to the community that helped launch her business. She’s starting a quarterly gathering for women business owners to network over lunch or happy hour.

The first event features Molly Broder, co-founder of Broders’ restaurants, on April 27 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Terzo, 2221 W. 50th St.

“I love to network, and I love to meet people,” Halcrow said. “That has always been a part of my work.”

Halcrow was hired right out of college as development director of Theatre de la Jeune Lune. She went on to secure  more than $1 million in philanthropic gifts each year for arts, education, health care and hunger relief organizations.

At her new business Corvus North, Halcrow works with nonprofits to raise funds, and she helps individual donors with their charitable giving portfolios.

Future networking events feature Clockwork CEO Nancy Lyons; Kate Mortenson, CEO of the 2019 Minneapolis Final Four Organizing Committee; and Page Knudsen Cowles, managing partner of Knudsen Vineyards.
