Galentine’s Showcase: Featuring Wisconsin Women Business Owners

Melissa Hoppe


Join us this “Galentine’s Eve,” as we host our second annual Brainchild Fund fundraiser, our Galentine’s Virtual Showcase!

Friday, February 12, 2021
12:00pm - 1:00pm CST

Emceed by the one and only TEDx speaker, Ashley Quinto Powell, we’ll be featuring up to 15 women owned small businesses during this fast-paced dynamic showcase.

In 2020, Kendra Scott graciously helped us kickoff our launch of the Brainchild Fund, a nonprofit initiative supporting women in business and entrepreneurship by hosting us at their Brookfield location. We couldn’t do this without the support of WWBIC, our nonprofit fiscal sponsor.

The Brainchild Fund aims to provide grants to women interested in business and entrepreneurship in hopes of helping them realize their dreams. Our vision is for women to  have the confidence, resources, and opportunities to build the futures they dream for themselves.

We’re striving to raise a minimum of $5,000 by the time this event is said and done. With your help, we’ll be looking to grant $10,000 to local women small business owners by the end of this year! Help us make it happen and invest back into your community of women small business owners.
