Celebrating Dreams

See You in 2024!

Celebrating Dreams 2023 was hosted at Metropolist in Seattle on May 25th, 2023. The event provided opportunities for participants to connect with other female entrepreneurs, mentors, community partners, resources, and leaders to celebrate female entrepreneurship!

For the 8th annual event, Celebrating Dreams focused on Reconnecting with Joy. The event provided opportunities for women to empower, uplift, and inspire one another. The Washington Women’s Business Center (WWBC) and Business Impact NW would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our Celebrating Dreams 2023 attendees, participating businesses, sponsors, and community partners; the event was a success! We featured 30 inspiring women-owned showcase businesses and welcomed more than 100 attendees; thank you for joining us! We look forward to seeing you next year.

* The Washington Women's Business Center is committed to providing opportunities to female entrepreneurs. At Business Impact NW we use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who significantly female-identify to apply for the showcase.
