Description

Celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship—Turning Passion into Profits

Featured Speaker Congresswoman Chellie Pingree

The U.S. Small Business Administration is joining with SCORE Maine and the Women’s Business Center at CEI to host a small business event specifically designed to assist women in business, women who would like to start their own business, and showcase the resources available to help them achieve success. We are honored to have Congresswoman Chellie Pingree as our featured speaker, sharing her own small business story.

Come hear from successful women entrepreneurs from Maine, as they tell their stories of how they achieved success, the obstacles they overcame and how they made it in business. Join us to hear from:

Heidi Vanorse Neal – The Loyal Biscuit Company

Nancy O’Brien – Fiore Artisan Olive Oils and Vinegars

Kate McAleer – Bixby & Co.

Cyndi Prince - LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls

In addition, there will be a resource panel featuring local resources that can help prospective and existing entrepreneurs grow their small business. From free management and technical assistance to grants, this panel will have something for everyone.

Special thanks to the TD Charitable Foundation for their generous support in making this event possible.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Contact Keith Lind at 207-622-8551 or by e-mail at keith.lind@sba.gov for arrangements.
