WOMB Market To Feature Female Entrepreneurs

November 26, 2018

Women who Own and Manage Businesses [WOMB] will be hosting their second annual market for female businesses this Wednesday [Nov 28] from 6.00pm to 9.00pm at the BAA 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,” said Stephanie Lee, WOMB Facilitator and Market Organizer.

“We host this market on the Wednesday after Thanksgiving, as it is designated as ‘Women Wednesday,’ the day where shoppers around the world 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.”

Over 30 businesses will be featured at this event, which is not limited to businesses with a physical product to sell, with Ms Lee adding that, “Service based businesses, and a few activity providers will be present. It’s a great opportunity to bring children, and have them engaged with an activity while you browse.”

“This is a platform to showcase yourself and your business. Bermuda’s female entrepreneurs are the backbone of Bermuda’s economy; whether large or small, operated full or part-time.”

“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,” Ms Lee said.

  1. Why baa says:

    Is it because it is central and has parking. Not the best place to house our women entrepreneurs.

  2. Thinking says:

    So, when if the BEDC holding a Men only market? Would it be deemed sexist? The BEDC released statistics stating that male entrepreneurs were far fewer than females, so I find it odd that they will be extended an additional boost, while male entrepreneurs are left to fan for themselves.

MEN have been owners of businesses for LITERALLY hundreds of years before women “were allowed” to even read….let’s not get into it about this. Actually let’s…..please just please list businesses owned by men in Bermuda……I’ll wait while you compile your 19,000 word dissertation!!!!!
