Leading Women Who Lead Small Businesses

Below are Vend Raleigh sponsored events, but don’t forget to check out the Vend Raleigh Directory Events Calendar to support and visit fellow business owners at speaking engagements, vendor fairs, and other special events around Raleigh

Monthly Education Workshops
Tuesday, December 1st at 10:00 am via Zoom

We kick off the beginning of each month with an educational workshop focused on our monthly topic. These workshops feature two speakers who are experts in their industry that will teach us, inspire us, and motivate us to make some big changes both in our business and in our personal lives.

Find out all of the details on this month's workshop and REGISTER HERE.


Community Chats | Real Talk with Real Women
Tuesday, December 8th at 2:00 pm via Zoom

Community Chats are all about real talk, real connections, and real advice from our fellow #girlbosses. Twice a month we invite a select few members of our community the opportunity to join a video call with two business leaders teaching on different aspects of our monthly topic. These seats are reserved for women who are ready to dive into the topics with the leaders and put it all out there. Think of it as your own private workshop where you have an opportunity to put your business in the hot seat and learn from the best of the best! Community Chats are live-streamed to the Vend Raleigh Facebook page where the rest of the community joins in and has an opportunity to ask questions and connect.

Want to put your business on the hot seat and join an upcoming call? APPLY HERE or tune in live on Facebook.


Monthly Book Club
Thursday, December 17th at Noon via Zoom

Do you love to read!? Then we would love for you to join the Vend Raleigh Book Club! One thing we have heard over and over from our community is that they love our live events, but they also really enjoy cuddling up with a good book as a way to learn and a bit of self-care time too. Our very own Kristen Bagwell will be hosts our monthly book club where we will focus on books that directly relate to our monthly education topic.

Better Toget(her) | Authentic Networking for Female Entrepreneurs
Wednesday, November 18th at Noon via Zoom

Business during COVID is already hard enough, but we want to make connecting with other business owners as easy as possible! Each month Vend Raleigh hosts a virtual gathering for networking that will include a time to share your business and connect with our community as a whole, and through smaller breakout groups. We are all about fostering long-lasting and meaningful relationships within our community. You don’t need to do it alone. We are Better Toget(her)!
