Ladies Who Launch is a YWCAMDI program facilitated by our very own Nicole Ouellette. This group of MDI women business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs will  meet for a period of five months to help the businesses involved launch and grow. The work of the group will culminate in an expo that all women owned businesses are invited to participate in sometime during the month of May.

This idea for the group evolved organically through the community. During the Fall of 2017, the YWCA MDI hosted a Work From Home Summit, inviting women who were either running or considering starting businesses, whether part or full time. The outcome of the brunch meeting, in addition to sharing resources and ideas with one another, was an idea of setting up a group that would meet regularly not only to support each other in business but to plan an expo to showcase all women owned businesses on MDI in the spring.

If you would like to be part of this program, please contact YWCAMDI

February meeting will be a web conference
