Description

Register Today to Attend the Urban League of Louisiana's 2019 Women-In-Business (WIB) Challenge sponsored by Fidelity Bank P.O.W.E.R. on March 27!

The WIB Challenge provides female entrepreneurs with the education, tools, and resources needed to scale their businesses towards profitability and sustainability. For nine weeks, ten semi-finalists participated in a comprehensive business education program, received technical assistance and counseling services, and were introduced to various resources to support their growth plans. Of the ten, four finalists were selected to advance to the pitch competition.

The event will be held during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (www.noew.org), presented by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and produced by the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and The Idea Village, on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at the New Orleans Jazz Market, 1436 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70113, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

During the event, an esteemed panel of judges will select the winner based on the effectiveness of the pitch presentation, scalability of the business model, and proposed use of award funds. A celebrated keynote speaker will also provide a motivational address prior to the announcement of the 2019 WIB Challenge winner.
