“Kim and I are excited and honored to work with C-Sweet in support of empowering and elevating women in business and in life,” said Pamela Lauper, Managing Director of BeDestined. “As more women become business owners, we want to share our knowledge and help them be prepared for an eventual exit.

About the Speakers

Pamela Lauper

Lauper is a former health care and insurance executive who brings over 30 years of expertise in building and implementing strategies that support revenue growth, organizational effectiveness, and high performing cultures, with a recent focus in M&A. Lauper’s mission is to help business owners achieve their life’s goals through developing and implementing a strategic plan on their journey to eventual exit or transition.

Lauper and her husband Bernard reside in San Francisco and for the better part of 25 years they have been traveling the world. They are passionate about food and wine and love to explore and learn about other cultures and their history. In an effort to “settle down,” they are busy managing and building a home in St. Helena, CA, and look forward to further indulging their love for food and wine.

Kim Kaselionis

Kim has been supporting entrepreneurs and her local community for over 25 years. She understands that entrepreneurship is vital to continued local, regional, and national economic health. And as the CEO at Circle Bank, Kim had a direct impact on the Bay Area community she served.

Using her keen analysis and leadership skills, she turned the once failed bank into a category leader then onto a successful exit. Continuing her mission to increase access to capital for privately held businesses, she created the first hybrid-crowdfunding loan program which combined equity crowdfunding with traditional bank financing.

At BeDestined Kim continues to advocate for entrepreneurs and their daily sacrifices. Their unwavering commitment inspires her to seek solutions to support their success and to achieve their legacy.

She is grateful for her family and enjoys traveling and any day at the beach.
