WBE Interactive Agency attends Chicago's Womens Business Development Center Conference
Today Lisa and I attended the Women's Business Development Center's Annual Conference at the Navy Pier. There was a lot of buzz in the room, the attendees were really friendly, and the exhibitors were exceptionally helpful and unbelievably willing to introduce us to marketing and interactive directors, as well as pass along contact info. Wow. It was a really terrific conference and networking event, and we both left quite exhausted. The big question is if the leads will turn into sales...
I learned something about Microsoft today. They spent over $1 Billion on WBE/MBE businesses and worked with 1200 WBE/MBE businesses in the past year. $1 Billion... Impressive. We'd be happy with .1% of that :)
