Event Overview

The Women's Business Center at Mercy Corps Northwest serves hundreds of BIPOC, women, and LGBTQIA2s+ entrepreneurs in Oregon each year. On October 28th from 5-8 p.m., we are holding our first-ever Women's Speed Mentoring entirely online. Historically, our in-person mentoring event has supported hundreds of Oregon business owners in achieving business success.

Women's speed mentoring offers space for women business owners to consult with like-minded business experts to get advice that can help them take their business to the next level. The best part? All of our mentors are located in the Pacific Northwest and can help you understand the needs of your business from within the market.

During the 3-hour event attendees will participate in a series of 1-3 mentor events in addition to attending main-stage presentations on the following topics:

  • Marketing
  • Branding
  • Business Plans
  • Bookkeeping
  • Business Law
  • Accounting & Finance
  • Taxes
  • Business Strategy
  • Business Operations
  • Leadership Coaching
  • Learning & Evaluation

Who can register?

Anyone who identifies as a woman located in Oregon or Southwest Washington is invited to join the event. We will be offering business mentorship to both current and prospective business owners.
