Mark your calendars for Women’s Entrepreneurship Week in Fargo, North Dakota. The week’s events take place throughout the week of October 21–25. The week’s goal is to help accomplish the mission to make the region the best place for women to start companies. The week is tailored not only to acknowledge all of women entrepreneur’s successes but to create a space for sharing ideas and networking.

The events are organized by the community and the Founding Partners and will take place in various locations throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area. The events include workshops, panels, social events, meet ups, office hours, and much more! The week is full of awesome events so make sure to write all of these dates in your calendar so you don’t miss one!
