WHY ATTEND? 

A one day conference tailored for Midwest Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners- with a feminine flair. This one day is unlike any other Conference you will ever attend in the Midwest.

Who should attend?
​Women who own, partially own or have a business idea and want to jumpstart real growth. Speakers and resources hit upon key areas for scaling a company, including: Financing, Marketing Strategies, Social Media- Do's & Don'ts, Media Exposure, Hiring, Exit Strategies, Website Prowess- and more.

​"Many women have expressed frustration with their business growth, network, raising capital, or product distribution.  Own It OMAHA! provides the platform to connect Midwest women to the business community, potential advisors, and each other while opening doors for business success.  I am proud of Omaha, and being from Nebraska. The strong and stable economy provides a foundation for small business owners and entrepreneurs to scale-up and reach its' potential.  Yet the Heartland can be stronger, and the missing gap is filled by women business owners."
