The Startup Assistance Grant Supports Emerging Women Entrepreneurs, women business owners and 2019 Girls (YEG)
The Metro Omaha Women’s Business Center (MOWBC) invites you to lead the community in supporting women entrepreneurs and professional women transitioning to business ownership by sponsoring our eight 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 10 years. Some of our programs include Business Forum Breakfasts, Lunch & Learns, Success Series workshops, Presentations, educational seminars, 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 eighth annual Ball on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn Ballroom at Aksarben. We offer dinner, entertainment by Samuella the Comedienne and music by DJ “B”, silent auction featuring unique items and a dynamic hall of fame ceremony, and grant awards presented to our emerging women entrepreneurs. Our first Ball granted one woman entrepreneur a $1,000.00 Start-up Assistance Grant and to date we have awarded $14000 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.
