ASU's business conference targets women entrepreneurs today | Business
The Small Business Development Center in the College of Business Administration at Alabama State University presents its annual Women in Business Conference TODAY from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Capital City Club.
The conference, titled “Success in High Heels: Taking Steps Towards a Successful Future,” celebrates women entrepreneurs who are starting, expanding and/or working to improve their businesses.
The community is asked to join women business owners, aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs for an educational, one-of-a-kind day filled with professional advice, information and networking.
This year’s conference features an impressive array of speakers from a variety of professions and industries, including retail, real estate, marketing and franchising.
Participants also will learn about contracting opportunities and the new Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program. This program authorizes contracting officers to set aside certain federal contracts for eligible women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) or economically disadvantaged women-owned businesses (EDWOSBs).
Registration cost is $25.
The Small Business Development Center at Alabama State University is a specialty program of the Alabama State SBDC Network, funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
