SBA Offers "SWAG" Networking Opportunity for Women in Mt. Pleasant

Women networking

The U.S. Small Business Administration is bringing a free networking opportunity for women entrepreneurs in Mount Pleasant.

“Stellar Women Achieving Greatness” (SWAG) is a free, networking opportunity for women entrepreneurs. SWAG will be “On the Road” in Mount Pleasant on Tuesday, February 25, 2020. This networking opportunity is hosted by Jo Eckert, Branch Manager of the SBA’s Cedar Rapids Branch Office in conjunction with the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce. The February 25th SWAG event will run from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. at Central Park Coffee, 120 S. Main Street, Mount Pleasant, Iowa 52641.

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.

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