This was a great opportunity to connect with like-minded women, socially responsible corporations, and more! I was able to learn how to better pitch my business and got feedback on next steps. I was also able to align myself with WBENC who like me, is invested in promoting diversity and innovation, opening doors for others and fueling the economy. Thank you WBENC and sponsors for this major opportunity!
