D.C.-based entrepreneurship incubator and nonprofit Halcyon has announced the lineup of women entrepreneurs set to present during its fall Fast Forward series. The three-part monthly series will be hosted and moderated by Marla Beck, founder and CEO of beauty retailer Bluemercury. The series is only in its second season, just launching in the spring.

Beck and Halcyon cofounder and CEO Kate Goodall conceptualized the series to bring leading businesswomen and industry visionaries to Halcyon to discuss how these women are tackling real-world challenges and shaping the future of business, the press release states.

“As a passionate entrepreneur, I’m thrilled to share the stage with some of the greatest business minds in the country,” Beck said in a statement. “The Fast Forward Series will serve as a platform for elevated conversation around innovation and entrepreneurship with visionary women who have made a profound impact on their industries — and as inspiration for the next generation of female leaders.”

Halcyon is kicking off its seasonal talk series on Oct. 24 at Halcyon House with founder and CEO of FramebridgeSusan Tynan, for a conversation on the future of ecommerce.

Additional speakers include Sallie Krawcheck, founder and CEO of Ellevest, talking about the future of finance on Nov. 15 and Sheila Johnson, founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts, for a discussion on the future of hospitality on Dec. 13 hosted at Halcyon House.
