GWEn Connects

Join Growing Women Entrepreneurs in and around Niagara for events that connect and build relationships. Throughout 2017, GWEn will present at least one monthly event that’ll give YOU the opportunity to build your networks with fellow “GWEn-preneurs”.

We’re happy to have our monthly #GWEnGetsSocial Media FREE Drop-in back again,

where you can come by and work on your social media, chat, and connect to see what others are doing to build their online profiles successfully.

This year held the fourth Wednesday monthly, 1pm – 4pm, at Edible Options Bakery House in St. Catharines.

Looking for something different?

We’re introducing #GWEnCoffeeConnects AND Ladies Night Networking to our 2017 event schedule!

FREE event, this is an opportunity for the GWEn Community to connect quarterly to discuss business and non-business topics alike, in an open and sharing capacity over a cup of coffee. Venues will be various, so keep an eye on the GWEn Calendar for all the details.

#GWENCoffeeConnects returns Thursday May 11, 10am-noon, Balzac’s Port Dalhousie (St. Catharines).

The topic of discussion: “Community + Leadership”. Whether you volunteer at your kid’s school, or with a service organization, on a committee or sit on boards, building a positive profile in the community adds to you, your business and your brand. We’ll be chatting about ways to incorporate what your community passions are effectively to champion what’s important to you (and how it can positively affect your bottom line). Oh yeah, and this also goes for those “freebie” sponsorships you may get asked for all the time too! Come share your opinions and experience with others!


Networking can be scary. Ever go to those cocktail-style networking events and feel lost? Unsure of how to connect or who to talk to? Change all that by coming out to a Ladies Night Networking event. This FREE event is a chance for you to build new and existing relationships, have some laughs, bevies, nibblies and maybe win a door prize! Help us grow this event to serve you better by bringing a fellow woman entrepreneur! Door prize donations welcome.

Psst… this isn’t your usual BA5 event… we hold it at 4pm on a Friday!
