Sioux Falls Women Entrepreneurs Roundtable
August 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am UTC-5Free
Hi everyone! I’m looking for some feedback and insight from women business owners in Sioux Falls. I’m the director of the SD CEO (Center for Enterprise Opportunity) | Women’s Business Center. We are partially funded by the SBA, in our 10th year and located on the campus of Black Hills State University in Spearfish who is our host. We provide business-related workshops, conferences, training, networking and free 1:1 business counseling for women interested in launching a new venture or current business owners looking to grow. We also have a successful women’s leadership program in Rapid, now in its 6th year.
While we serve all women across SD, our focus has been in Western SD and for the last two years, in the NE part of the state where we work closely with SBDC and Northern State University hosting a Women’s Business Conference.
As we are planning for our 11th year, I’d love to know your thoughts on what is needed in Sioux Falls for women entrepreneurs. Do you feel you are getting the services, counseling, resources, advice, connections, whatever…. to be successful? I’m not looking to recreate any wheels or duplicate services in any way. I’d like to better understand if there is a place for the Women’s Business Center in Sioux Falls and if so, who we might partner with.
Would you be interested in being a part of this conversation? Please join me on Friday, August 9 at 9:00 AM at the Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship. This is not a presentation or anything formal, it will be an open round table discussion to hear your thoughts, ideas and to listen in on what women entrepreneurs and business owners need in Sioux Falls.
If you plan to attend, please let me know so I can make sure we have enough coffee :-). I look forward to meeting you! Any questions in the meantime, please let me know. Thanks! Michelle Kane, director, SD CEO } Women’s Business Center 605.642.6311, [email protected]
