Virtual Vision 2020 – October 15th

Thank you to all who participated in our virtual conference! Conference materials and Q&A session responses will be live in Whova until November 16th

"All of it was really exceptional, the people were friendly, speakers were knowledgeable and engaging, and conference was interactive with follow up steps on your own. It is a great starting point for beginning entrepreneurs."

"St. Louis needs more events like this! It was wonderful to be in a room with so many other women and people of color with ambitions and dreams and VISION! The energy was great from the start and continued to the last second!"

"It's hard to pick the most valuable aspect of Vision 2019. All of the speakers dropped gems that I will carry with me forever. Rebeccah made me feel seen, Dr. April made me feel heard, and Cedric motivated me to take action!"
