Please note:There is a small cost associated with this WE Forum to cover the cost of lunch, and the ticket will allow you to participate in up to 9 different afternoon panels at the E1 Expo on topics from social media marketing, to funding your business, to staying healthy as an entrepreneur. We are changing it up with 1) a noon time frame (lunch included!), 2) couples presenting together and 3) as part of a whole afternoon of fun entrepreneurial events and panels at the E1 Expo!
Make plans to join us for this special WE Forum at NOON on the 9th of December and stay for the whole afternoon!
The E1 Expo will start with WE Forums at 12:00pm and go through 6:00pm. The $20 fee pays for your attendance to the event, all sessions, boxed lunch, and appetizers later in the day.
*Masks are required in all Saint Mary's University facilities.

What is the WE Forum?
The Women Entrepreneurs (WE) Forum was launched in 2019 to provide free educational programming for women who are running a business, as well as those who are seeking to start a business. The idea started as a partnership between Saint Mary's University and the Rochester Area Economic Development Inc. (RAEDI). In 2020, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce joined as a partner, and in 2021, the Collider Foundation, SCORE, and Rochester Women Magazine have also joined the partnership. This partnership is indicative of the desire and commitment of all these organizations to support new business start ups and ensure they have the right training and networks to succeed.
What Happens at our Events? Each month we hear from speakers who have deep experience in the topic to be discussed. There is lots of room for questions from the attendees to ensure the discussion is relevant, informed by experience, and addresses the real questions women have when running a business.
Why Join Us? These events have proven to be valuable networking and learning events for women business owners. It is a chance to hear from those who have faced the same challenges and hear how they navigated those challenges to become successful entrepreneurs. Join other Rochester area women who are passionate about their ideas and their business. You may find your next client or business partner!
