The Metro Omaha Women’s Business & Forum (MOWBCF) invites you to lead the community in supporting women entrepreneurs and professional women transitioning to business ownership by sponsoring our ninth annual Masquerade Ball & Auction.
Founded by BC Clark in 2008, MOWBC is a leader in the metro area in supporting women owned businesses and professional women. Over 5,500 women have benefited from our programs over the past 11 years. Some of our programs include Business Forums, Business Success Series workshops, Presentations, educational seminars, FEAR Tours conferences and various business social/networking events, and our premier annual event, the Start-up Assistance Grant Masquerade Ball and Auction. We strive to educate, inspire and empower women by bridging connections with other businesses, by providing educational and vendor opportunities, and by promoting awareness of community resources.
To further connect and assist women, we are hosting our ninth annual Ball on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Omaha Marriott Hotel Ballroom in Regency. We’re offering dinner, entertainment and music by DJ “B”, silent auction featuring unique items and a dynamic hall of fame ceremony, grant awards presented to our emerging women entrepreneurs. Our first grant awarded one woman entrepreneur a $1,000.00 Start-up Assistance Grant and to date we have awarded $16000 in Start-up Assistance.
This fun, special event will not only provide funding needed to award start-up grants, it will also help us further our vision of offering educational training and mentoring for women, and leadership and internship for young girls 11 to 18 wanting to go into business and or a professional career this is a unique mentoring and education program targeted for inner city girls, accepting all.
