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.

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 Sunday,June 28, 2020 on zoom. Grant awards presented to our emerging women entrepreneurs. Our first grant awarded in 2012 a $1,000.00 Start-up Assistance Grant and to date we have awarded almost $20,000 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. The YEG program is a unique mentoring and education program targeted for inner city girls, accepting all.
