SBA Offers "SWAG" Networking Opportunity for Women in Eastern Iowa

Women networking

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

The next session of the free networking opportunity entitled “Stellar Women Achieving Greatness” (SWAG) will be held on Monday, July 15th 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.

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 time or come and go as their schedule permits. SWAG will continue to be held the third Monday of each month from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the SBA Branch Office in Cedar Rapids.
