NAPA Women in Successful Enterprises Monthly Roundtable

Event Details

Women business owners in Napa County, you’re invited to an exclusive round table meeting.  

The purpose of this roundtable is to provide a place/time for Napa women entrepreneurs to network, learn and receive and give advice, ideas, encouragement, and accountability. 

REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE

  • Napa business location: This is a Napa cohort. Businesses can be of any type, as long as it is in Napa County. 
  • Women only: This group is for dedicated women small business owners working together to help each other keep improving your businesses, both in a pure business sense and in a meaningful, personal way.
  • Currently in business: This is not a start-up group, but exists to help women who are already running a business. This group does not deal with startup issues. 
  • Orientation: Participating in the roundtable orientation will help you know what to expect and how to make the most out of the roundtable.
  • Dedication! Joining this group is a regular monthly commitment to learning and improving your business – and helping other Napa ladies do the same with their businesses!

WHAT TO EXPECT

This roundtable covers a wide range of topics — business planning, marketing strategy, online marketing, funding, personal/business balance, working efficiently, and more. There are opportunities to network while ramping your business up. 

This group meets once a month online for 1.5 hours each time. 

This roundtable is hosted by Solano-Napa Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and is funded by a grant from Redwood Credit Union. 

It is free to join but regular attendance and dedication is a requirement! You will have an opportunity to learn about new support and resources that can have a positive impact on your business. You’ll hear about talent management resources and engage with your fellow roundtable group members online.    

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance.

If you have questions about opportunities to join this or a future group, or you need help with your business, contact the Solano-Napa SBDC at 707-646-1071 or view the website at solanosbdc.org. 

Best Regards,
