We Are Here To Inspire Through:


01. Connection


02. Mentorship


03. Actionable Takeaways


“Networking is an investment in your business. It takes time and when done correctly can yield great results for years to come.” — Diane Helbig

Connect with others who are on the same path, facing the same challenges and roadblocks, and pushing forward each and every day.

This event is your chance to find five new powerful women to spend time with (or fifteen, or fifty?)


“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” — Oprah Winfrey

The event’s presenting organization, SCORE, was founded in 1964 to provide volunteer mentoring to entrepreneurs and has served over 11 million.

We live and breath mentoring because it is a key lever to pull for any small business owner looking for more growth, stability, and confidence.


Actionable Takeaways

“Action is the antidote to despair.” ― Joan Baez

Our event is special for female entrepreneurs because of the recipe:

  • One part connection and networking
  • One part awareness of and access to resources
  • One part support and inspiration

The final ingredient:

  • Many dashes of actionable insights and next steps to start and continue relationships, break through challenges, and make real progress
