SUMMIT & SALUTE

Event Overview

WBENC’s Summit engages participants in a two day program filled with a focus on the future of various industries, business networking, and development opportunities. The Salute follows the Summit and is a festive evening that highlights our 2017 America’s Top Corporations for Women Business Enterprises and our Women's Business Enterprise Stars. The Summit occurs on March 20-22, 2018 in Dallas, Texas. The Salute! Dinner will take place on the evening of March 22, 2018.

Day One

(PRE-SUMMIT DAY) TUESDAY, MARCH 20

Pre-Summit activities include the Women's Enterprise Forum Meeting, WBENC Board of Directors Meeting, NextGen Meeting, and WEInnovate! The registration desk is open all day; if you registered online, be sure to stop by and pick up your program bag and event materials. Onsite registration is also available. The PreSummit Welcome Reception will end the Pre-Summit day and offer an informal evening of networking for the WBENC Board, Forum, and other committee members.

IMPORTANT NOTE: WBENC National Committee Meetings have been scheduled for Monday, March 19, 2018.

Day Two

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21

The Summit officially begins with the Procurement Opportunity Meet & Greet in the morning. This session is designed to allow WBENC-Certified WBEs to position their companies, products and/or services to participating National Corporate and Government Members. No appointments are required and all WBENC-Certified WBEs with a full Summit & Salute or Summit Only registration may participate. At the Celebratory Luncheon we will celebrate the success of our WBENC network, which includes women entrepreneurs, supplier diversity professionals, and strategic partners. Day two afternoon activities consist of the first round of future forward workshops where attendees will learn from visionaries from corporations around the WBENC network. Be sure to plan your workshop strategy so you can maximize your time and attend as many of these sessions as possible. The day will conclude with the Dallas Kickoff Reception and Silent Auction where we will continue our celebration of our WBENC network.

Day Three

THURSDAY, MARCH 22

The morning starts off with WBENC’s signature 1:1 MatchMaker meetings. This is an opportunity for WBENCCertified WBEs to have pre-scheduled appointments with National Corporate and Government Members and their prime suppliers/key business partners to explore 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tier sourcing opportunities and learn how to be considered for these opportunities. WBENC-Certified WBEs who register prior to the January 22, 2018 Early Bird deadline are eligible for participation. NOTE: 1:1 MatchMaker appointments are extended by the participating National Corporate/Government Members based on their current interest and supply chain needs. WBENC cannot guarantee that all eligible WBEs will be extended a 1:1 meeting. After the 1:1 MatchMaker meetings, a second round of future forward workshops will be held. There will be many industries and topics to choose from. These engaging sessions will be followed by a Keynote Luncheon, a program that is sure to inform and inspire. After lunch the final round of future forward workshops will be held and the Summit will conclude. The evening festivities will include receptions to get everyone in the celebratory spirit before heading to the Salute! Dinner, where we will culminate our time together by honoring our 14 Women's Business Enterprise Stars, America’s Top Corporations and other special individuals. When the dinner program concludes, it is time to look forward to Detroit in June at the Post Salute Party!

“THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THIS OUT THERE. As a female entrepreneur you will face obstacles and hurdles that will discourage 95% of us. If you make it to the last 5% standing, and you make it to WBENC SEP you will get your air. You will hear testimonials and stories from very successful women on how hard it can get- but you will also learn about the happy endings if you just keep pushing and pushing. You will be inspired and in 6 days you will get all the energy you need to keep pushing your venture forward. Use that energy to help you reach the next milestone!” – Ya-El Mandel-Portnoy 2016 SEP Graduate and Pitch Competition Winner from Mount Sinai School of Medicine

“I had the unique ability to connect with corporate mentors within my target market. They not only had valuable information and connections, but their entire corporate team at WBENC became my cheerleaders. They helped me with my pitch, invited me to their dinners and outings, and ultimately allowed me to create organic relationships that will last beyond the program.” – Parisa Soraya, 2017 SEP graduate from University of Michigan and CoFounder of Find Your Ditto

PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS

The Tuck-WBENC Executive Program was an extraordinary experience! After five days of intense instruction by A-list professors and amazing interaction with over 50 successful business women, I returned to my company with more knowledge, more inspiration, and more energy than ever before! In addition to incredible one-on-one interaction with Len and Ella, I had a wonderful opportunity to meet briefly with Pam and Candace to discuss specific growth strategies for my business. The entire experience was a game-changer for my company! – Claudia Abercrumbie The Abercrumbie Group

“The Tuck-WBENC Executive Program provides an invaluable experience that helps give women the knowledge, strength, and support to help us go back and run our businesses, knowing we can and will be successful. The professors are top notch, both in their knowledge, and also in their passion. They teach you how to view your business more strategically. They also help you self-reflect, which is hard to do at times, but with building relationships with other women entrepreneurs, you’re all in it together and lifelong friendships are developed. Thank you, WBENC, Tuck, and IBM for this amazing opportunity!” – Marce H. Roth Agilea Solutions, Inc.

“The Tuck-WBENC Advanced Executive Program was life changing. I am a business owner, but I was never trained on how to actually manage a growing company. The top-notch professors from Tuck and the professional team at WBENC helped me learn more about executive leadership, accounting, excellent customer service, and why it’s so important to work with other WBEs. I also met a fantastic network of women that will be my advisors and friends for many years to come. Thank you WBENC for offering such a wonderful

­

development opportunity.” – Laura Gross Scott Circle

TESTIMONIALS

“One of the many benefits of WBENC is the Dorothy B. Brothers Scholarship. I was awarded this scholarship to attend the Tuck-WBENC Advanced Executive Program, where I gained insights into my leadership, methods to grow my company, and made new, lasting relationships with other WBENC entrepreneurs. The Dorothy B. Brothers Scholarship made my decision to attend the Tuck-WBENC Advanced Executive Program effortless.” – Darby Bruno BEI Net.works

“Having the opportunity to attend an Executive Program at Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University developed my self-confidence to create strategies for reaching new clients and deepening my relationship with existing ones. The program provided exceptional teachers who coached us through the thought-provoking curriculum, as well as ongoing networking opportunities that I know will open a wide range of doors to an exciting new path to the future.” – Barbara Bosha Bosha Design + Communications

“The Dorothy B. Brothers Scholarship provided me with an amazing opportunity to attend a week-long Leadership and Strategic Impact Program at Dartmouth Tuck School. I found the ability to step outside of my company and gain insight into the theory behind operating a business to be invaluable. I left the program with solid action steps and significant insights for managing my business including the 360 degree feedback I received from my team. I am most appreciative of the Scholarship, and the opportunity it provided for me to look at my company, my team, and my management approach with a new perspective.” – Gayle Piraino GAP Promotions LLC

Overview

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council NextGen Program fosters opportunities and development of the next generations of both women-owned businesses and supplier diversity professionals under 40. Launched in 2017, the NextGen program drew over 150 attendees at the inaugural meeting and continues to evolve and expand. WBENC is proud to be on the cutting edge of engaging the next generation through the support of WBENC Corporate and Government Members.

NextGen Reverse Mentorship Program Sponsor AVAILABILITY:

The NextGen Reverse Mentorship Program provides the opportunity for corporate members and WBE’s under 40 (NextGen) to share knowledge and learn from more experienced generations of corporate members and WBE’s within the WBENC network. The objective is to create open sharing of ideas and information to foster learning, not only for mentors and mentees, but the WBENC organization overall. WBENC Reverse Mentors will serve as change mentors, advising the organization to ensure continued delivery of CORE objectives that meet the needs of both current and future stakeholders. The sponsors of this initiative are companies with a strong commitment to evolving the WBENC brand through engagement of the next generations of both female entrepreneurs and supplier diversity professionals. This sponsorship provides logo branding on the NextGen webpage at wbenc.org/NextGen and in all marketing promotions for WBENC’s NextGen Reverse Mentorship program promoted via social media and email blasts to over 30,000 people.

You will have the opportunity to create and upload resources specific to what your corporation believes WBEs need to know to be successful working with you. Inside your Collection you can provide any content that you believe is beneficial to the WBEs who visit Insights. Better yet, this means that the WBEs with whom you do business are even better prepared to work with you. In the end, you reap the rewards of providing these resources to the WBEs.

Growth & Sustainability Fund ACCESS TO CAPITAL 2018 WBENC SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

113


Growth & Sustainability Fund

WBENC has established a restricted funding account that is being structured to allow WBENC to address short to mid-term needs for Access to Capital for Certified WBEs who meet specific funding criteria. Through our work the past 6 years supporting the National Women’s Business Council, WBENC has learned a great deal about the Access to Capital barrier that challenges growth of women-owned businesses. While we understand that Start Up and Early Stage capital are challenges, we believe WBENC’s place is to focus on the barrier around the niche of expansion and growth capital. This fund is focused on mentorship around growth. As funds are accumulated we will begin to provide answers to financial capital needs.
