June 21, 2019-June 21, 2019

An Unconventional Women`s Conference brings extraordinary ideas together by focusing on improving women business owners success. This conference has been engineered to assist women owned businesses with growth through business to business and corporate contracting, tactics to operate at maximum capacity and unconventional tips to business success. 

 

THE CONFERENCE GOALS
1. INCREASING THE VALUE OF WOMEN OWNED BUSINESSES
  • According to the 2018 State of the Women Owned Business Report, four out of every 10 businesses (40%) in the United States are now women-owned. However, 88% or 10,775,600 of those firms make less than $100,000 a year. The Unconventional Conference expects 60% of enrolled participants who own their own business to increase their value as measured by revenue and number of employees.
2. BUILDING SUSTAINABILITY FOR WOMEN OWNED BUSINESSES
  • Businesses owned by men have a 75.1 percent three-year survival rate, compared to 69.5 percent for women-owned companies. Women are increasingly harnessing their entrepreneurial spirit and starting businesses however their revenue is not equal to their male counterparts or their chances of survival. The Unconventional Conference will track the enrolled participants and include the results of their sustainability in the Arizona Women`s Economic Vitality Report.
3. GROWING AN ARIZONA WOMEN OWNED BUSINESS
  • The Phoenix Business Journal states that Arizona saw a 53.6 percent increase in women-owned businesses, however, employment at those businesses grew just 1.9 percent, while sales grew just 15.3 percent. The Arizona Women`s Economic Vitality Report will include the progress of the enrolled participants by measuring business revenue and number of employees yearly.
4. CELEBRATING SUCCESS
  • The Women`s Enterprise Council West has increased the economic impact of certified women`s businesses enterprises in Arizona. The 180 Women Business Enterprises in Arizona contribute to approximately $500 million in annual revenue impacting more that 12,000 Arizona jobs. This conference will identify additional women business owners that are ready to be certified and contribute to the results of women business enterprises in Arizona.
