NEW is partnering with the Louisville Professional Chapter of the National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA) this month. NAWMBA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering female business professionals. For more than 30 years, the organization has served four related client groups: female MBA students, female business professionals and MBA-level entrepreneurs, universities and corporate partners.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For the past 8 years NEW has provided a relaxed and informative venue for woman entrepreneurs to network with like-minded women.  We have provided, at no cost, food, and wine as well as invaluable information and connections to help you grow your business.  The ‘libations’ have been provided by the NEW core team with supplementation from your donations at the time of the event.

While we would like to maintain this format, the number of people registering for an event then not showing along with an increase in the cost of the food we serve has caused the board to re-think our practice.  For these reasons, we recently elected to charge a small fee – $10 –  for attending our monthly NEW events that we hope will assure us of true attendance numbers and allow us to more effectively plan for the food and drink.  The fee can be paid upon registration on Eventbrite. We truly appreciate your support over the past 8 years and look forward to seeing you at future events.
