The Women’s Entrepreneurial Conference is a one-day educational conference for Utah women business owners featuring general sessions, breakouts and grant pitching competition. The conference helps women develop skills, access resources and build relationships in order to run more scale-able and profitable businesses. Conference is presented by the Utah Women’s Networking Group, and the Women’s Business Center. All profit from the annual conference is reinvested back into women-owned businesses through grants to help fund growth.

This past year’s conference was bigger than ever for its fourth year in a row! The presentations and breakout sessions focused on social media marketing. The highlight was of course the final round of live pitches for the grants. Each year we have grown our available grant funds and the number of grants we have given out, as well as extending the reach of the grant competition statewide. In 2020 we look forward to offering a virtual format to support state guidelines regarding large gatherings.
