Held during Global Entrepreneurship Week, the 2012 Women Entrepreneurs Conference is a full-day business event geared toward providing women entrepreneurs with timely, practical information, knowledge, resources and tools to build and grow their business to the next level. The theme for this year’s event is Women Entrepreneurs:
During the full-day event, attendees will be immersed in a high-impact program featuring a series of interactive workshops with over 14 business experts, small group coaching sessions, a power networking luncheon featuring a speed networking session, a panel discussion featuring prominent female entrepreneurs from across Michigan, exhibitors, and a closing networking reception.
“We are excited to provide a forum where women entrepreneurs can learn, grow, and connect,” said Tonya McNeal-Weary, Executive Director and Founder of Michigan Association for Female Entrepreneurs. “Our goal is to foster the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs across the state by providing them with the tools and resources to help them succeed,” she added.
