Biz 417's Ladies Who Launch 2023 
July 20, 2023 | 11:30 AM - 6:00 PM

White River Conference Center

Welcome to Biz 417's Ladies Who Launch, 417-land's ultimate business leadership event. We're here to empower, inspire, and uplift our female leaders, and we promise to have a little fun while we're at it. 

Our half-day conference is designed to provide you with the tools, inspiration, and support you need to succeed as a leader in today's competitive business landscape. This year's theme is Claim the Power in Your Purpose as illustrated in our dynamic speaker line-up. We'll talk about passion, purpose, boundaries and the elusive idea of saying no. Then we end with a rosé happy hour to celebrate all we've learned and toast to our futures, over a glass (or two) of delicious wine.

Are you ready to connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for success? Then join us for our 6th annual Biz 417's Ladies Who Launch. Don't wait too long! This event will sell out.
