Tomorrow: Call to Entrepreneurship

Join us tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 2) for Women Veterans Marching Forward: Call to Entrepreneurship, an educational program for anyone interested in small business ownership. The event takes place from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on the Seton Hill University campus in Greensburg, PA. (Details here.)

Women with military experience are natural entrepreneurs who possess the training, experience, and leadership skills to start businesses that will create U.S. jobs. Explore entrepreneurship as your next step, secure available business resources and tools, and meet other women veterans who are business owners. 

Not a woman with military experience? You're still invited! Although this event is geared toward women with military experience, the information and resources that will be presented are useful to anyone (male or female, with or without military experience) who is interested in learning about entrepreneurship.

What last year's participants said about the event:
"A wealth of information."
"All of the panelists were knowledgeable and entertaining."
"I really enjoyed hearing the stories and helpful information/advice!"
"I'm not a woman or a veteran, but it was still interesting."
