Carla will appear at the WBDC 13th Annual Business Breakfast this Thursday, November 13th, in Stamford, CT.

During the breakfast, Carla and other panelists will discuss The Women’s Small Business Ownership Act of 2014, which focuses on promoting women-owned small businesses through three areas:

  • women’s small business counseling
  • small business contracting
  • access to capital

Here’s a video with Carla urging congress to stand with women entrepreneurs:

WBDC’s 2013 Business Breakfast celebrated the 25th anniversary of HR 5050, key legislation, which:

  • Initiated the women business center grant program
  • Established the National Women’s Business Council
  • Mandated the US Census Bureau to include C Corporations when counting women-owned firms
