Event description

Description

Join the Grand Rapids Business Journal on March 19, 2019, for a day filled with networking, practical business advice, and special recognition.

Since its launch in 2005, Grand Rapids Business Journal's biennial Top Women-Owned Businesses program has sought to honor the region's leading female entrepreneurs. In 2019, these awards become part of a new Business Journal event, Women Who Mean Business.

Women Who Mean Business is a day of inspiration, education, motivation, and celebration. Learn about valuable business resources from the leading professional women's organizations in the region. Discover how our panel of women CEOs not only broke the glass ceiling, but continue to innovate and lead some of the most successful organizations in our state. Finally, be inspired by the success stories of GRBJ's Top Women-Owned Businesses Award winners, who will be announced for the first time to conclude the day.

Every paid admission includes a reserved seat for the entire Women Who Mean Business event, a complimentary professional head shot photo, continental breakfast, lunch, and a special bonus... a one-year GRBJ print+digital subscription!

Head shot photos will only be taken from 8 am to 9 am, so please plan accordingly, if interested.
