Event description: 

Join Small Business MajorityNew Covenant Community Development Corporation, and the North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council to celebrate Women's History Month in March 2018 with a set of interactive events that provide resources for minority women small business owners.
Women now own nearly 10 million small businesses in America that contribute significantly to our economic vitality, and four in 10 businesses are owned by women of color. Despite this progress, women, especially minorities, continue to face challenges in starting and running their businesses, such as access to capital.
To address this issue, minority women small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to attend a noon roundtable on Thursday, March 8. These events include an interactive presentation, peer networking and an armchair chat with a minority female business owner where we’ll discuss financial security and funding options to start and build a scalable business. Small Business Majority will also introduce SimpleGrowth, a new lending tool that connects Chicago-based businesses to local financing and educational resources.
Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. Space is limited to aspiring and current women owners with confirmed RSVPs. To register, visit: https://byobw3-8.eventbrite.com
These roundtables are part of Small Business Majority's “BYOB—Be Your Own Boss” women’s entrepreneurship roundtable series.
