The WEC Planning Committee is proud to announce the Women’s Entrepreneurial Virtual Conference will be held on Wednesday, May 27th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This year’s theme, Driving Growth: Strategies to Kick Your Business Into Gear will provide a variety of breakout sessions based on different stages of growth. The morning, lunch and afternoon Grant competition sessions are no cost presented by our sponsors Chase Bank, American Express, A+ Garage Doors, Mountain West Small Business Finance, Salt Lake Community College Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program and SCORE. The main sessions will feature presentations on Champions for Your Business, The Power of Positivity and the WEC Grant Final Competition.
Besides the main sessions, the Conference will include Breakout Sessions with panels throughout the Day based on the stage of your business: 0-3 years, 2-5 years and 5 years plus. To join the sessions for one stage, the cost will be $ 25.00 which includes one vote for the People’s Choice Grant during the afternoon session. If you would like access to more than one stage of the breakout sessions, you can sign up for an additional stage. One name/one email address will be sent links to participate in the stages. All proceeds for the breakout sessions will fund next year’s WEC Grants.
Links will be sent to registrants in advance of the Conference. We will do our best to manage the webinar technology but ask that all participants become familiar with the webinar tools prior to the event. There will not be any on hand technical support.
We hope you will join us on May 27th for a day of expert panels, motivating information and inspiring pitches from our Grant Finalists!
