We got word of an extremely WOW! opportunity: Springboard Enterprises Venture Forum. Women entrepreneurs have until June 24th to apply for a chance to join a six-month program aimed at getting them ready to apply for venture funding. The culmination of the experience is a Venture Forum on September 28th, where the participants will present their business plans to a panel of influential venture, angel, private, and corporate investors in the Midwest. Co-sponsored by Northwestern University's Center for Women Entrepreneurs in Technology, the program will be held on the Northwestern campus and targets mid-western women-led businesses, though it is not restricted to them.
