Sponsor Partnerships

T Connect your brand with the buying power of female business owners.

Show your company support for small businesses when they need it most.

Our attendees have been working hard and moving forward through the last two years, and have shown innovation, fortitude, and care for their communities, regardless of their limitations.

These women are constantly looking for better products and services to improve their businesses and how they care for their households and local communities. If you connect with the group, and have transformative offerings or experiences, they will be your best word of mouth and cheerleader. It is truly a stand out group of women.
