Kearney, Neb. - Registration is now open for the fifth annual Women Entrepreneur Conference, hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs’ Rural Enterprise Assistance Program (REAP) Women’s Business Center and Small Business Administration.

The one-day conference will be held on April 11, 2018, in Kearney at the Holiday Inn & Convention Center, 110 Second Ave. The event will begin at 8 a.m. and close by 4 p.m.

The conference is dedicated to growing women entrepreneurship in Nebraska, and features opportunities to share, learn, and network.

“The Women Entrepreneur Conference will bring together successful and aspiring women business owners to support and encourage one another,” said Monica Braun, REAP Women’s Business Center director. “This event includes networking, which is what entrepreneurs say they want most.”

Sessions will focus on marketing in a small town, both online and offline; accounting; and small business legal issues. The day wraps up with a panel of small business owners.
