Tuesday, April 2nd 2013
Don’t miss the fourth annual Women Entrepreneurs Inspire (“WE Inspire”) Conference on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013. WE INSPIRE is Recognized as one of “The Top Ten Conferences for Female Entrepreneurs”, and has been awarded a commendation by Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin. This one-day symposium will be held from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. Register Online.
Entrepreneurship is the key to revitalizing Oklahoma’s economy and women are leading the charge. Here and across the nation, women are starting for-profit and non-profit ventures, developing innovative new products and services, winning patents, and creating new markets. Today, an estimated 50% of small businesses are owned by women (12.4 million firms generating $2.5 trillion in sales, 2007) and for the past two decades women-owned firms have grown at twice the rate of all other firms. Yet women entrepreneurs still lag behind male owned firms in key areas.
WE INSPIRE is geared broadly towards women who have just started a business, those who may only have an idea for a new business, and women who are looking to grow their existing businesses. WE INSPIRE is a resource-packed day featuring both local and national entrepreneurial role models discussing their failures and successes, as well as providing conference attendees with the latest in business development and strategy. With over 1,000 women entrepreneurs and more than 30 acclaimed speakers in attendance, the conference is also an incredible networking opportunity.
This day-long conference is designed to inspire women to pursue their passions, think big and turn their dreams into reality. We explore unique obstacles, demands and challenges women face when creating and growing their own ventures. The event will feature keynote addresses by leading women entrepreneurs from across the nation and from Oklahoma. Hands-on breakout sessions will examine a broad range of practical issues to enable women to act on their dreams. The breakouts will include two tracks: Start-up and Growth. The Start-up track will focus on creating your own venture, while the Growth track emphasizes ways to grow your venture once it is up and running. This year, WE INSPIRE will also feature sessions on technology entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship. This is an incredible opportunity to be inspired, to network and to tap your entrepreneurial potential!
Please join us for a day of inspiration, learning and networking with leading women entrepreneurs from across the country and the State of Oklahoma. Register Online.
