NWBC Chair Liz Sara in Journal Express

 NWBC Chair Liz Sara spoke with Journal Express about the importance of rural entrepreneurship and how NWBC provides a platform to promote opportunities for Female Founders.

The roundtable was looking to discuss challenges that rural women business owners face in setting up and running businesses. National Women’s Business Council Chair Liz Sara said that she was very happy with the turn out for the event.

“I’m very excited about the large turnout that we had from women business owners around Iowa, not just in Pella and the representation that was exhibited through the varied companies that they own and that they are currently running,” said Sara

Sen. Ernst agreed and said the event was a great way to bring together women leaders.

“The women’s small business roundtable was wonderful and a really great opportunity to meet so many women leaders throughout the community that really do have that great entrepreneurial spirit and talk about some of the challenges that they have had and … how they’ve turned those into opportunities,” said Ernst.

Sara said the roundtable was an important way to help the National Women’s Business Council better understand the unique challenges that women business owners face in rural areas.
