WHY ATTEND? This is a day for and about women entrepreneurs and business owners, to come together, learn, share, network and many times, determine a course of action with the contacts needed to grow your business and change your life. In one day, you will meet resources, potential advisors, investors, funders, media, retailers, and other women- just like you, who have an idea, a business and a dream.
"Many women have expressed their dissatisfaction with the business community as still being VERY male-dominated. I want to change that by providing a platform for women to come to the table, be an active part of the business community, and a vibrant contributor to the economy. I am so proud of my hometown and being from Nebraska. Yet, the Heartland can be stronger, and the piece that is missing is women-owned firms."
Melissa Gasnick Cloeter, Own It Ventures Founder/President, University of Nebraska-Omaha Alumni
