THIS YEAR’S THEME

This year’s theme is “Together We Dare.”  As women business owners, we’re naturally “daring” individuals. After all, we took a huge leap in starting our own businesses and continue to dare every day—to break boundaries, push limits, change the status quo, work together, attempt the unexpected, be authentic and create our magic. We simply look at the world differently and see opportunities in obstacles. Join NAWBO’s inspiring community of women entrepreneurs as we dare together to reach new heights in our lives, our businesses, our communities and the world. There’s no limit to what we can do when TOGETHER WE DARE!
