In the past, Arrowhead Center has successfully brought together experts who provided participants with their insights and experience to early-stage and aspiring women entrepreneurs. Last year, more than 130 attendees and speakers mingled online through presentations, panels and interactive breakout sessions.

This year’s conference will build upon the success of previous years by continuing to foster a virtual space for innovators and business owners to come together and share their experiences, make connections and pick up practical tips for their businesses.

The WE Mean Business Conference will feature panel discussions led by experts on Taking the Leap and Funding Your Business. Workshop topics will include Digital Marketing and Raising Your Voice. Opportunities for live Q&A sessions with business support service providers will be available throughout the day. During the event, attendees can connect with speakers and other attendees through chat options and by scheduling private meetings.

Following the conference, an in-person reception will take place at 6 p.m. at the Amador Patio Bar & Grill, 301 S. Main Street in downtown Las Cruces, where the recipient of the first WE Mean Business Women Entrepreneur of the Year award will be announced.

The sixth annual conference is co-hosted by Arrowhead Center, NMSU’s entrepreneurship hub, and WESST, a statewide small business development and training organization. Arrowhead Center is grateful for visionary sponsors Paul and Alejandra De La Vega Foster.
