About WeMN

Women Entrepreneurs of Minnesota (WeMN) was founded in 2007 by Amalia Moreno-Damgaard, an entrepreneur who, at that time was transitioning from a corporate career to full-time entrepreneurship and recognized early on that she needed a network to support her.  As she embarked on her entrepreneurial journey and subsequently founded her own businesses and strived for resources, she encountered a very weak support system for small companies and women in business.

WeMN is a pioneer organization that filled the void in the Twin Cities at a time when it was needed most. It provides for its founders and members a network to grow personally and professionally while being able to help other women in the process.  The manifold of benefits the founders have obtained from starting a nonprofit organization like WeMN extend from gaining business exposure and expanding their networks, to making a real difference for entrepreneurial women by delivering high quality leadership and educational programming.

Since its inception, WeMN has gradually increased its board of directors and created an honorary advisory board to recognize and honor these members who have completed their terms and who have become a priceless resource in times of additional support.  Peer Advisory and the Mentoring Program are WeMN's flagship initiatives that provide for its board and members an opportunity to learn and engage at a much deeper strategic level.

During its 10 years in business, WeMN has been invited to participate in an annual program sponsored by the State Department that brings together women entrepreneurs from all over the world to the United States. WeMN board members have had the unique opportunity to exchange international business views and ideas while also experiencing diverse cultural interactions through meaningful face-to-face meetings with foreign dignitaries and private sector professional women.

WeMN and its board of directors aim to provide value-added services to its members through active participation in the day-to-day operations of the organization. With a working board of volunteers, WeMN is proud to call them partners and have them as ambassadors to an organization that strives to stay current and relevant, all while providing meaningful support to entrepreneurial women in the Twin Cities.

Women Entrepreneurs of Minnesota is a 501(c)6 nonprofit organization, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota
