Making The Leap: From Law Firm To In-House Intrapreneur

August 31 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Please join us on Thursday, August 31st at 5:30-7:00pm for a shop and sip party along with a moderated chat with The Barre Code's General Counsel and Athleta ambassador, Suleen Lee.

Suleen Lee joined the rapidly expanding boutique fitness startup back in 2012, when there were 3 locations in Chicago. Suleen was specifically brought on to develop the franchising program for the company, and The Barre Code has since grown to 40 locations in 4 years. Since then, The Barre Code has also developed an online platform of workouts and an e-commerce retail line in addition to its locations.

Bringing a more entrepreneurial perspective to her in-house perspective, Suleen will share her story of what it was like to go from law firm to The Barre Code, and what she believes helped fuel the company's growth. Come learn more about her triumphs and challenges faced in scaling a company, and get some shopping in too! We'll have $10 shopping cards for each attendee, along with wine and light bites.
