After registration, email your picture along with contact information. The Omaha World Herald is planning on doing a post-conference series on the women they meet at Own It OMAHA! (Send pics to info@ownitomaha.com. Attn: OWH Opp.)  

​"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 women-owned firms."
