WOW Women of Worth Tri-Cities Tennessee

Less than 1/3 of the world’s businesses are owned by women.There is a tidal wave of female entrepreneurship rising, but women face incredible inequality accessing loans and capital. More than 60% of new US businesses launched since 2002 are owned by women, yet less than 3% of venture capital was invested in female founded companies, during that same period.

WOW is about supporting female entrepreneurs and business owners and aspiring women business owners. KOSBE has created an environment for women to get together regularly, to connect with mentors and mentees, share resources and best practices, continue to learn, be creative and have fun.

Light refreshments will be served.

There is a $10/person donation requested for this event, with proceeds benefiting the KOSBE Women of Worth project.
