ASBTDC to Present Panel Discussion of Local Women Entrepreneurs

Amy Moorehead, owner of Nexus Coffee, is one of the women entrepreneurs speaking in an upcoming ASBTDC panel.

In celebration of Women Entrepreneurship Week, the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC), based at UA Little Rock, is presenting a panel discussion featuring female business owners from central Arkansas who will share their wisdom.

The free virtual panel discussion, “How I Got Over,” will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, in partnership with the Women’s Business Center, Montclair State University, and Bank OZK. Please follow this link to register for the event.

The panelists include Sharee Young, owner of Take Aim Axe Throwing; Amy Moorehead, owner of Nexus Coffee and Creative; Tina Gilbert, owner of Next Level Thinking; and Katherine Daniels, owner of KD Consulting Company. In addition, Nancy Sims, Bank OZK executive vice president and government guaranteed lending national sales manager, will moderate the panel.

“Celebrating the women who have had the courage to venture into entrepreneurship is a privilege,” said Pamela Reed, diversity and inclusion specialist at ASBTDC. “Hearing these women share their entrepreneurship journey has the potential to not only empower and inspire women interested in becoming entrepreneurs, but to also enable them to learn from their experience.”

Participants will learn how local women got over the barriers and obstacles on their personal entrepreneurship journey, including how they navigated COVID-19.

October is National Women’s Small Business Month. It highlights the benefits and industry women bring to communities when they own small businesses.
