    It's nice that these kinds of group encouragements exist, but from a quick review of the available online accounts and promotional materials pertaining to this conference, I see a big female cliche' component.

    Lemonade, fashion boutiques, jewelry design, an actress / TV host as keynote, "music as soon as you walk in"... where's the science and engineering component? If you really want to promote wider entrepreneurship development among young women, you ought to also encourage some of them to gain the specialized technical skills that will allow them to develop their own niche businesses, especially in the Houston-Galveston area which is so focused on the energy services and petrochemical manufacturing sectors. The opportunities are substantial and very rewarding, although with many of those working environments, the high heels and earrings must be left at home.
