Starting a business is appeals to many women. The first step crucial to success is developing a business plan. MWAF partnered up with Farm Credit Canada, Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development,The Women's Enterprise Centre of Manitoba and World Trade Centre Winnipeg (WTC Winnipeg) to offer a series of workshops where you'll build your own business plan.


The program: 6 workshops on Wed, 3 h each, morning or evening. Delivered by WECM https://wecm.ca

Dates/time: see WECM events. If they don’t suit your needs, we'll try to create a group, just for women in agbiz, at a time good for everybody. The workshops would be delivered by WECM, same content. We need a minimum of 6 participants.

Cost: $231 including tax. Our subsidy is 75% for MWAF members and 50% for non-members. We’ll provide the funding until it’s exhausted so it is a good idea to get in as soon as you can. Non-members have the option to become a member and receive the 75% discount.

If you are interested, please, contact MWAF's Chair, Laura Lazo, 204-487-4980, or email her at mbwomeninagnfood@outlook.com.
