Women's Entrepreneurship Day Conference

2018 is turning out to be a banner year for women–but when it comes to access to resources, information, and critically, capital, women lag behind. Growing awareness of the lack of parity in access to capital is leading to more conversations about entrepreneurial investment. Access to capital has long been an issue for women entrepreneurs and founders from non traditional backgrounds. Join us as we partner with Mercy Corps NW's Women's Business Center, the Xxcelerate Fund, Women Led, Built, the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network, and the Entrepreneurs Organization to celebrate Oregon's inaugural Women's Entrepreneurship Day.
