News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda – Giving women entrepreneurs an opportunity to shine is one mandate of W.O.M.B [Women who Own and Manage Businesses]. So, they will be hosting their third annual market for female businesses, Wednesday December, 4 2019 from 6.00pm to 8:30pm at Bermuda Athletic Association Gymnasium.
“We are pleased and excited to bring this market to the holiday market circuit for the second year. The participants last year were so pleased and excited, many asked for the market to be held quarterly. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity at this time to put on a quarterly market, but we are grateful to be able to bring this market for the second year,” shares Stephanie Lee, WOMB Facilitator and Market Organizer.
“We host this market on the Wednesday after Thanksgiving, as it is designated as WomenWednesday, the day where shoppers around the word are encouraged to patronize female entrepreneurs in their community. As a part of our mandate, we host this market to provide a platform for the hundreds of female driven businesses in our community.”
The market will be held at Bermuda Athletic Association, this Wednesday, December 4th, from 6-8:30pm.
“We’ve received an overwhelming response, having reached capacity, and started a waiting list! This speaks to the power of being able to provide this platform for the many female entrepreneurs on the island. We have a few regulars, a few new faces, and a few who have started businesses while still in school!
They are looking to feature as many as 40 businesses, and are not limited to businesses with a physical product to sell. “While a majority of the businesses are offering products for sale, there are a number who offer services, both for individuals and to make life easier for families”
“Of course we encourage all of Bermuda to come out and support for Bermuda’s Female Entrepreneurs. I am always pleasantly surprised and pleased by the quality of the offerings presented by vendors. By patronizing local businesses, you are helping these women provide for their families; which in turn benefits the country.”
