Did you know that the Women’s Business Development Council recently opened its third office in New London County?
If you’re a woman (or man) interested in starting or expanding your own business in southeastern Connecticut, you don’t want to miss the Women’s Business Development Council’s (WBDC’s) kickoff event! It’ll be held on Tuesday, July 10th at 5:00pm at the Public Library of New London. WBDC Founder and CEO, Fran Pastore, will be giving a dynamic seminar on “Empowered Women, Empower Women.” She’ll be discussing the importance of women’s entrepreneurship in Connecticut, and how women-owned businesses are fueling economic growth locally and nationally.
A devoted catalyst for women, families and communities, Fran will share her personal journey as an entrepreneur in Connecticut. You’ll leave with tips on what you can do to launch and build your own business, and learn about the programs and services WBDC has to support you on your entrepreneurial journey.
After the seminar, you will also have the opportunity to meet WBDC’s team of business advisors.
This kickoff event is no charge. Business owners, entrepreneurs, community organizations, and anyone looking to join a inspiring conversation about women’s entrepreneurship or learn more about the Women’s Business Development Council, are encouraged to attend.
