Join us before DWEN officially kicks-off for an inspiring afternoon of creativity, entrepreneurship, and social good. At the event, you will meet teens from local Girl Scout troops to discuss social issues facing girls today and then, in small working groups, start brainstorming ideas for businesses the teens could start to help address them. These same business concepts will then become the focus of the Girls Track for the next two days of DWEN
