In this free webinar, the second in a series focused on challenges faced by women entrepreneurs, we tackle networking. The webinar will present networking best practices and will include stories from women who have successfully leveraged networking in their careers. We will explore how to tap into your network, ways to grow and cultivate your connections and how to follow a disciplined approach to networking. The format will include an introductory presentation on networking best practices, followed by a panel discussion among some of our area’s power networkers, and a moderated question and answer period where attendees can post questions to our panelists. 

Start networking! As an extension of our Women Entrepreneur Challenge series, you're also invited to an in-person networking event.

We’ve teamed up with Maryland Women’s Business Center and Verizon, along with the Community Business Partnership and Bowie Business Innovation Center, to host three special in-person events for small businesses. Network with local business leaders and meet Verizon representatives to learn more about Verizon’s Small Business Digital Ready resources and grant program that can enhance your success in a digital marketplace.
