Women’s Entrepreneurship Week is Back!

Choose From 30+ Events Focused on Supporting, Connecting, & Celebrating Entrepreneurial Women

2020 has been full of changes, but one thing remains the same – our belief that our region can be the best place for anyone to start a company. Join us for our second annual Women’s Entrepreneurship Week, taking place September 21-25, from wherever you feel comfortable. We have a week packed with virtual and small in-person events to help you build your business, access to experts on issues facing all entrepreneurs and opportunities to connect with others committed to supporting founders.

Last year’s WEW was hosted in Fargo and saw the largest gathering in the country with over 700 people participating throughout the week. This year, WEW will offer digital access to all events to ensure that anyone can safely participate and more women can benefit from the week’s activities. There are more than 25 events on the schedule, offering opportunities for women at all stages of their entrepreneurial journey to benefit. Events cover topics such as managing cash flow, successfully hosting virtual events, and the important aspects of technology. The week’s events connect, celebrate, and impact women entrepreneurs.
