FocusME: Game Changing Support for Women Entrepreneurs


“FocusME helped me regain focus, set priorities, share common struggles and collaborate with a wonderful group of peers to strategize about future resolutions.”

The Women’s Business Center at CEI and the Portland SCORE Chapter are collaborating to host FocusME, a series of peer groups for female entrepreneurs. This fall we are offering an Early Stage Business Peer Group and a Growth Stage Business Peer Group. We encourage you to consider the group descriptions carefully and contact us with any questions you might have. Please register for the group that you feel is most closely aligned with the stage of your business as well as your personal and professional goals.

Once you’ve registered we will contact you and ask you to complete a short questionnaire to help us learn more about your business. We will review your responses and contact you with any questions we might have. Please note that in order to ensure that both groups are filled with businesses that are non-competitive and in similar stages of growth the WBC will make the final recommendation with regards to participation for each group.

Six bi-weekly initial sessions will be held on the following dates: September 18, October 2, October 16, October 30, November 13, November 27. Four additional Mile Marker sessions will be scheduled by the sixth initial session (November 27), and will be held bi-monthly, bringing your cohort through a full year of programming.
