Eventbrite - OWN IT OMAHA!

  WHY ATTEND?  This is a day for and about women entrepreneurs and business owners.  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 frustration with growing their business and business network.  They have experienced brick walls while trying to raise capital, or expand product distribution.  Own It OMAHA! provides the platform to connect women to the business community, advisors and open the doors for business growth.  I am proud of Omaha, and being from Nebraska.  The strong and stable economy provides a foundation for small business owners and entrepreneurs to scale-up and reach it's potential.  Yet the Heartland can be stronger, and the missing link is women-owned firms."
