Are you a woman planning to start your own business, or just starting a new venture? Looking for support, friendly feedback on your ideas and challenges, and a tribe to help keep you motivated? One of INSPIRELLE’s goals is to provide a platform for women to connect, inspire, and support each other; and, we’re always thrilled to meet and connect with others who share a similar mission.

So, when the vivacious Stéphanie Boutet Fajol, founder of Sacrebleu Paris, and lawyer-turned-mother-entrepreneur, mentioned offering a special deal to INSPIRELLE readers on this event for entrepreneurial women in Paris, we didn’t hesitate to share it with you!

  • PLUS: a mixology session to learn how to create a “sacre cocktail”!

  1. I’m working on a side project that I’d love to turn into a business and attending this would be a good kick in the pants (in a good way, of course) to get it off the ground. Thanks for always telling us about great events!

  2. This topic will resonate with all entrepreneurs. I’ve created my business on my passion : home search. Passion is essential as it fuels your daily work no matter what the challenges. But profit is also important to nurture that passion and keep on helping others. Looking forward to this event, Camelia

  3. Hello I hope I can be a winner I am very interested in participating, I have started my passion a few months ago and all ideas and help I can get would be a plus !

  4. Learning more about why and how to start your own business is very tempting – after many years of labor for an employer, I wonder if it would not be more advantageous and satisfying to put that energy towards my own business. What would I need to put in and what would I get out of this adventure? Is starting one’s own business a good plan for a young person starting out like my daughter? At what point in her career? Many questions and soul searching that this event could help with.

  5. Hi
    I’d love to win an entry to the “starting your own business” event as Inspirelle inspires me and I’m sure this will be a great event mixing our network and ideas.
    Hoping to win..
