Want to be part of 2018 Women Entrepreneurship Week?

Save the date! Women Entrepreneurship Week 2018 is set for the week of October 13 – 20, 2018.

It is easy to join the WEW global movement, and have your university or college host an event during the official Women Entrepreneurship Week dates. Any college/university or nonprofit is welcome to participate in Women Entrepreneurship Week. All you have to do is hold an event related to women during the designated week, Oct. 13-20, 2018. There is no cost/fee to be involved. Each university or nonprofit has the flexibility to design its own event. A program can be a big public event or it can be a small gathering of students listening to a woman entrepreneur. The only requirements are that the event focus on women entrepreneurs, and be held sometime during the designated week. If your university or nonprofit would like to participate in WEW 2018 or needs more information, please contact sharon.waters@montclair.edu.
