Rochester Initiatives

WE Forum

Women Entrepreneur Forum

Recognizing the gap in educational programming for women entrepreneurs, the Kabara Institute developed a suite of training events designed to specifically support women interested in starting or growing a business. Partnering with RAEDI, a local economic development organization, this joint initiative has resulted in popular free monthly events on our Rochester Campus that focus on topics such as financing, marketing, and pivoting a business model. Be sure to follow them on Facebook @WEForumRochMN to stay updated on upcoming events and don’t forget to check out the WE Forum 2020 Calendar.
