Video: That’s Her Business
Even with the economy starting to improve, it's difficult for a new business to attain startup financing. That's where organizations like WomenVenture help connect female entrepreneurs with the cash, counseling and exposure they need to get a budding company blossoming. The St. Paul-based organization has an impressive list of partners, from Minnesota's multi-national banks and food companies to the state's Department of Employment and Economic Development.
Every year around this time WomenVenture holds a Holiday Showcase for its small businesses to show off their products. Food, clothes, photography, toys and even trapeze lessons were on display for this year's business fair.
