All around our region, women entrepreneurs are working hard every day to balance running a business with everyday life. You can have it all, but that doesn’t mean it is easy – and it certainly doesn’t mean you have to do it on your own.The Entrepreneur Fund’s Women’s Business Alliance (WBA) exists to provide a powerful nexus for strategic support, capital, and networking for regional women business owners. We want to help your business succeed and connect you with other women entrepreneurs who’ve been there. That’s why we created the IGNITE Forums, and are excited to bring five high-profile women to share their experiences and insights.

Last year, Dr. Erika Garms shared her secrets to translating neuroscience and scientific theory into organizational performance and workplace effectiveness. She knows that leaders can positively impact their workplace by understanding how brains process change. She calls it a “brain-friendly” workplace, and knows that this model helps leaders to bring out the best in their staff.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or employee, Dr. Garms’ work will help you develop a healthy, positive and high-performing workplace. Interested in developing a brain-friendly company?


Listen to 2017 IGNITE speaker Dr. Cindra Kamphoff interview Dr. Erika Garms.

The 2016-2017 IGNITE Forums will kick off with Rebecca Undem on Living and Working BIG. Part rural America expert, part corporate America misfit; Undem helps leaders embrace the quirks and challenges of living and working outside the metropolis.

Mark your calendars – Undem will speak in Duluth on November 15, 2016 at the Holiday Inn and in Grand Rapids on November 16, 2016 at the Timberlake Lodge.
