MIRACORPís President/CEO Cynthia Reed was selected to
participate on the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) panel for the ChallengeHER
The event, hosted by WIPP, SBA, and American Express Open
brought together women entrepreneurs and federal contracting officials at the
Arizona Small Business Association. The event recognized the strength and
capacity of women-owned small businesses in Arizona, and also offered
informational presentations, panels, and networking.
Following the formal presentations, the WOSB panelists
discussed their experiences with starting their companies and entering the
Federal contracting sector. The WOSB
Panel consisted of four
successful women who work with the Federal government, providing various
products and services. Each owner hoped to inspire the ChallengeHER attendees
with her story of start-ups, growth, disappointment, and success!
Overall, the event was a great opportunity for MIRACORP to
lend expertise, learn from WOSB colleagues, and celebrate the success of women
entrepreneurs in the federal contracting world!
