FemPreneur Conference

While there are several incubators, start-up support organizations, and small business advisers out there, many focus their offerings and services on businesses that plan to build something that can grow exponentially and eventually be sold for a lot of money. However, many female entrepreneurs start businesses with different goals in mind than building an empire. They start their companies so they can have the freedom, flexibility and fulfillment they need while keeping their families as a top priority. The support, mentoring, collaborating and advising that these female entrepreneurs need is much harder to find when they don't fit into the traditional "startup" or "entrepreneur" molds.

Oscar Wars

While many other books on the Oscars act as yearbooks with encyclopedic coverage of every ceremony, Oscar Wars is narrative-driven and selective: each of the book’s eleven chapters takes a deep dive into a particular year, category or conflict that represented a turning point for the Oscars, for Hollywood, or for the culture at large. Oscar Wars is deeply researched and supported with extensive interviews with Hollywood insiders, and features never-before-seen correspondence and documents from the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library. Michael Schulman is a staff writer at The New Yorker since 2006. His Profile subjects have included the comedian Bo Burnham, the talk-show host Wendy Williams, and the actors Adam Driver, Elisabeth Moss, and Jeremy Strong. His work as a writer has also appeared in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, The Believer, Aperture, and other publications.
