 SBA Changes Time, Date and Location for  Monthly "SWAG" Networking Opportunity for Women Entrepreneurs

Women networking

The U.S. Small Business Administration is continuing a new, monthly networking opportunity for women entrepreneurs in Eastern Iowa. 

The networking opportunity entitled “Stellar Women Achieving Greatness” (SWAG) is free. SWAG was previously held on the second Saturday of every month, but now will be held the 3rd Monday of every month from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the SBA Branch Office in Cedar Rapids, 2750 1st Ave. NE, Suite 350, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402. The next SWAG event will be held Monday, May 20, 2019.

SWAG offers women who are in business, or who are thinking about starting a business, the opportunity to meet, connect with and provide mutual support to each other. Attendees will give a short elevator pitch and then share thoughts, ideas and suggestions with the rest of the group with the goal of making connections with others who have faced, or may be experiencing, similar issues in starting and growing a woman-owned small business in Iowa.

SWAG is casual, and no pre-registration is required. Attendees are welcome to stay for the entire two hours or come and go as their schedule permits.

For more information, contact Jo Eckert at (319) 362-6535 (office), (319) 450-2027 (cell) or at jo.eckert@sba.gov.
