Women Entrepreneurs Conference

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

This conference is designed especially for women who own or are interested in a small business. You'll learn about legalities, finances, and the nuances of all-important networking. Plan to Attend!

The Women Entrepreneur Conference is scheduled for March 18 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the YWCA of Grand Island, 211 East Fonner Park Road. We've planned a day of insights, inspiration, and personal growth to help celebrate Women’s History Month in March.

To kick things off, Patricia Brown-Dixon and Rebecca Greenwald, both with the Us Small Business Administration, will offer remarks. Others on the agenda include:

  • Jennifer Rosenblatt of Argyle Octopus, a marketing firm which took home the award as the SBA’s Small Business of the Year for the 1st Congressional District in 2014
  • J’Nan Ensz, Accounting and Business Consulting Group, LLC
  • Speakers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic
  • A panel of local entrepreneurs who will share their challenges and successes as women small business owners

The event will also offer a half-hour fun and fast networking event hosted by Lisa Tschauner and Megan Arrington of Open For Business Magazine, to connect entrepreneurs with resource providers and other small businesses.

The $35 registration fee also covers lunch. Register online here by March 11, 2015. For more information, contact Monica Braun, monicab@cfra.org or 402.643.2673.
