Check out the power-packed agenda for the 2018 EmpowerHer Summmit!

EmpowerHER, a partnership between Ford Motor Company Fund and Michigan Women’s Foundation, will offer a continuum of programs and services to women (and a few good men) wishing to start or grow Social Venture Enterprises.

A social venture enterprise:

  • fundamentally exists to solve a real community problem
  • must focus on a product or service people will pay for
  • must follow “No Margin, No Mission,” that is, while some profits may be sacrificed to serve the mission, the business must ultimately be sustainable
