Today was the FIRST EVER virtual WBC launch! The team went up to the USU Extension in Brigham City (which, by the way, was only built last December and is SO beautiful and new!) and met over 50 women from the area who came to see what the Women’s Business Center is all about. Monica from the Brigham City Chamber was extremely organized and did such a great job of recruiting attendees and getting the word out. We couldn’t have done it without her. The event was great. Ann Marie told everyone about our new projects and resources. We met some great women in the area like Wendy from the local SBDC and Alison Johnson, the 2015 Businesswoman of the Year. Such great women to know! Our next step is to follow up with a focus group to see what women want and need as far as building and growing their businesses. We’re excited to be involved in Box Elder County and look forward to visiting other counties soon!
