Keynote Speaker Announced
Alyssa R. Martina has agreed to be the keynote speaker for Entrepreneur-YOU3. She is a former adjunct professor at Walsh College and a former member of the board of directors for Michigan Women's Foundation.
Alyssa is passionate about serial entrepreneurship, having launched multiple ventures in the media space. After serving for five years as legal counsel to one of the nation’s largest state judicial circuits, Alyssa launched Metro Parent Magazine in 1986 to fill what she perceived as a void for parents in southeast Michigan. She was clearly onto something: The publication has grown into a “parenting bible” for more than 250,000 readers. Alyssa has since brought three other magazines into existence: two other parenting magazines and a resource for African American families that developed into a publication called B.L.A.C. (Black Life Arts and Culture). Meanwhile, the online version of Metro Parent has won three national awards for best parenting web site. Her newest venture is a social-networking site and app called memloom which is receiving much attention from the tech world. Alyssa earned an MBA with the highest distinction from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and a JD from Wayne State University.
Three Michigan organizations, led by three influential women, have joined forces to propel existing and aspiring women entrepreneurs to new heights. The collaborators are:
o Inforum Michigan, Terry Barclay
o Michigan Women's Foundation, Carolyn Cassin
o Walsh College, Stephanie Bergeron
The initiative - Entrepreneur-YOU - motivates and assists women starting and growing a business. 2014 will mark the third annual conference. In each of the first two years, more than 200 women participated - standing room only for the Walsh College Troy Campus venue.
