Women’s Entrepreneurship Lunch

September 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Please join ICAD + the Business Partnership and the University of Iowa’s John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (Iowa JPEC) for a great opportunity to network with other women entrepreneurs in the area and make lasting business connections. Let’s empower each other and define what it means to be a woman doing business in Iowa City. This event is free, and lunch will be served. PLEASE REGISTER.

This quarter’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Lunch is extra special, as we’re hosting the event as a part of Welcome IC Area‘s 2023 Welcoming Week celebrations. Welcoming Week is an annual campaign that celebrates the work in communities to become welcoming places for all, including immigrants. Launched in 2012 by Welcoming America and its members, Welcoming Week provides individuals and organizations the opportunity to showcase their values through events and initiatives that foster connections and collaboration between immigrants and non-immigrants, as well as belonging for all.

In honor of this special week, we have curated a panel including female immigrant entrepreneurs who will share their unique entrepreneurial journeys. Panelists include:

We look forward to seeing you there! PLEASE REGISTER BY 9/6/23 by 8pm in order to receive a lunch.
