WEST Women’s Business Center

Mendocino Women’s Summit 2019

Join us for a day where women business owners come together to share ideas, expand knowledge, discuss solutions, and get to know other female Mendopreneurs. The Mendocino WBC at West Business Development Center is excited to announce our first Women’s Summit, scheduled for Friday March 8, 2019 in conjunction with International Women's Day 2019.

This full day event features keynote speakers who are innovators in their fields, breakout sessions led by female entrepreneurial trailblazers, and the chance to share stories and solutions with other women who’ve taken on the challenge of business ownership in our area. Mendocino WBC at the West Business Development Center supports keeping this new wave of local entrepreneurs well informed and connected to cultivate shared knowledge and support within our business community and improve our local economy.
