Every business owner needs a tribe to support, share skills, and inspire. Women entrepreneurs are no exception. In fact, we are built for social connection.

Whether you are just thinking about starting a business, growing a new business, or creating another business, you need other women in your corner to help you grow and succeed, and they need you!

The CLUB of Silicon Valley is starting a 3 Semester Mastermind Program for fearless women entrepreneurs to create a community where women can connect with like-minded people and get support from industry experts and successful entrepreneurs. During these sessions, the members of the group will not only get the support and knowledge from their peers, but they will bask in the insight of experts on such topics as the legal aspects of starting the business, product development/customer validation, raising capital, and connecting with investors communities, marketing, scalability, and pricing. 

*All participants will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to ensure that the topics discussed will be kept confidential*

The workshop will consist of (3) 3 month long semesters. Each semester we will focus on exciting new topics starting in January with our Winter Semester! You will not be able to sign up for only one session, you will need to sign up for the entire semester if you are interested in participating in a specific session.

This series will be lead by Founder/CEO, Svetlana Kamyshanskaya & Business Operations and Strategic Leader, Niyati Shah. 

Svetlana Kamyshanskaya is an accomplished and resourceful professional with two decades of successful experience in legal practice and business.

Svetlana has extensive experience providing full legal advice to businesses in connection with various corporate matters and advising clients on a wide range of commercial transactions, including international dealings.

She acted as a person who managed the start-to-finish process of different commercial transactions by advising on their structure to ensure compliance with applicable regulations to reduce potential risks. She negotiated and drafted contracts and acted as a liaison to cross-functional teams.

As the result of extensive experience assisting clients with international legal and business matters, she understands how much companies underestimate the importance of understanding the landscape of international law and how much they need to have a partner to help them with all legal aspects of commercial activity, especially when they are looking for new business opportunities.

Primum Law Group is the synthesis of Ms. Kamyshanskaya’s journey as a professional. With Primum Law she assembles nineteen years of bilingual, multi-cultural legal and business experience to work helping businesses expand their horizons and succeed in foreign markets. She likes her clients to think of Primum as their partner for business which creates the legal framework for their business growth and success.  Primum Law Group implements its founder’s motto “It’s all about action and reaction, anticipating the move before the move.”

As our world becomes more globalized Svetlana foresees greater opportunities for businesses and is very excited to provide legal support to them.

Niyati Shah is a visionary, compassionate, bold, and veteran business leader, artist, mother, and social activist. She has been a servant leader and an instrumental part of Fortune 500 companies including Cisco, GE Digita,l and Synopsys for over 15 years.
