Food for Thought – Women Entrepreneurs business visit!

22. November 2019 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm


Meet empowered women with a motive to make it work: you’ll be inspired for sure!

Sometimes you meet women, in Basel or elsewhere, who have ‘taken the plunge’. They have worked hard to set up their businesses, and in that process, learned many lessons, made some mistakes, but continued nonetheless, and are moving forward.
We fully admire them and can learn so much from them just by hearing their stories!

On Friday the 22nd of November, we will be welcomed by Phyllis Lovelace (owner of Gymboree Basel, preschool, parent & child classes & an indoor playground) and Andrea Schöllnast (founder – a personal babysitter agency).
We are invited to Gymboree where due to a co-operation, Andrea has a satellite office. Gymboree is located right next to Schutzenmattpark, and a simple but delicious lunch will be offered for a modest  contribution of CHF 10 per person.

During the lunch, both Andrea and Phyllis will tell us a bit of their story, how they got started, what made it grow bigger, how to have meetings with investors and the bank, and how they set up everything.
It won’t be a “structured presentation”. It’ll be a sharing of their story with us, in an informal way. Energetic & focussed women, deeply motivated to “make it work” in their chosen fields. You’ll be inspired for sure!

Join us for this business visit, where we can have the opportunity to hear from two entrepreneurs and from each other. There is always much to be learnt from real life experience. We can’t wait!
Register below for a seat latest on Monday 18 Nov, and if you have any dietary-restrictions, please do let us know a week in advance at the latest by sending an email to
