Thursday, August 22, 2019
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
NEW Location: The Oceanaire Seafood Room

Getting “registered” or “certified” as a business owner is something we’re all advised to do - especially serviced-based, professional companies. But you may have reservations, and you may wonder what the opportunities are REALLY like for your business. Will you see a return from your investment or will you be disappointed by the opportunities?

If this sounds familiar, the August Luncheon was designed with you in mind. Find out how to leverage certifications to secure business opportunities that will scale your company, meet key contacts who are looking to work with you, and talk with women business owners who’ve had success.

 

*Parking for this event is not included. Please self park on the street or in a nearby garage. Please enter through The Oceanaire's main entrance from the sidewalk on Meridian Street.

NAWBO-Indianapolis does not issue credits or refunds. No-shows will be billed accordingly. All pricing is subject to change on an annual basis.

Resources you need to achieve smart business growth are available to NAWBO members on both a local and national level—resources that can help you find everything from new sources of capital to maximizing your certification to tips on how to begin government contracting. Join NAWBO and drive your business forward!

“I've learned strategies to run my business more effectively through monthly programming and relationships built with other women business owners. It has also been a forum for creating partnerships with fellow members to gain new business. As a working mom, I gain strength and encouragement from other working moms. Additionally, these women are my friends—we share something so unique in common!”
