  1. I’m afraid I’m nowhere near any of the offline events listed; I’m across the pond. The Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference looks interesting though. WomanCon too. Have you been to either one yourself, Laura? If so, how did you find it?

    Nice list of events. I love the idea of a photo contest and the prize. It gives businesses something to look forward to instead of attending “just another business event”. I am also interested in the Women-oriented conferences. Surprising how many women are into business these days.

  3. It is encouraging to see a nice list of event especially for women entrepreneurs. The prizes also seem attractive. Women go into business to provide a second source of income for their family.
