The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is gearing up for its 2023 Women’s Business Summit, a two-day hybrid event scheduled for March 28-29. Designed to celebrate Women’s History Month, the summit will unite women entrepreneurs and thought leaders from various public and private sectors.

This year’s event, organized in collaboration with the National Women’s Business Council, features an impressive lineup of co-sponsors, including the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, Wells Fargo, and the Association of Women’s Business Centers. The summit will host virtual panels, interactive “Ask an Expert” workshops, and engaging fireside chats aimed at helping women-owned small businesses expand and flourish. In-person salon and listening sessions are also planned, led by local and regional hosts.
