This event will provide business owners with alternatives to infuse cash into their businesses for growth - and ultimately pay themselves.

Women Entrepreneurs of St. Louis (WEST) is back in action with its first event for 2015 coming on April Fool’s Day – no joke. After spending the majority of Q4 2014 talking with its members to further refine its mission in the community, WEST is redoubling its efforts to distinguish itself as a not-for-profit, robust, resource-driven, growth support center for the region’s women business entrepreneurs. Not seeking to duplicate efforts of other women-focused organizations, WEST maintains that its strength lies in connecting women business owners with the resources they need to grow their businesses. While the national fervor spreading the region focuses on local angels and accelerator programs, which WEST celebrates, the reality is that many businesses – especially those without a biotech or tech focus – are left out of the angel and accelerator contests. WEST maintains that all types of businesses are the back-bone of every economy and ultimately provide jobs to the region.

WEST’s “No Foolin’” event is an educational networking event on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, starting at 5pm at the Center for Emerging Technologies (20 S. Sarah Street) to discuss more ways a business owner can leverage personal assets to grow her business as well as financial products that allow the business owner to pay herself and grow her business at the same time. The presenters for the event are Doug Peden, Financial Advisor at Edward Jones and Tracy Rittenbaum, Client Relationship Manager at UMB Bank.

WEST inspires, connects and empowers all women entrepreneurs in and around St. Louis, Missouri.
