SOAR Conference FOR women in business

After two years of connecting with others almost exclusively online, the 4th Annual SOAR Conference, held October 11-13, 2022, transitioned to a two-day hybrid model. On Day 1, participants gained inspiration and helpful business insight from a virtual keynote and virtual panel made up of local entrepreneurs. On Day 2 and 3, conference participants connected in person (Duluth and Princeton areas) with women who aspire to build successful small businesses.

SOAR is a conference for women in business. It is also a mindset, an action plan, and a community geared at supporting women business owners, entrepreneurs, and leaders in our region to make incredible things happen.

More information about the 2023 SOAR Conference will be available soon. Check back for updates.
