Florida is one of the top 10 fastest growing markets for women-owned businesses, and female entrepreneurship is thriving right here in Tampa Bay. To celebrate, Working Women of Tampa Bay, the area’s largest networking group for women, will host its 5th annual Think Pink Holiday Shopping Boutique on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 from 6 – 8pm at the Shriner Activity Center, 4050 Dana Shores Drive in Tampa.
The events are among several in Tampa Bay to recognize Global Entrepreneurship Week, the world’s largest celebration of the people who launch businesses to drive economic job growth.
The Think Pink Holiday Shopping Boutique provides a chance for women to support other women-owned businesses, network over gourmet food and wine tastings, indulge in mini-spa and make-up treatments, and make holiday purchases from dozens of local vendors showcasing unique holiday gift ideas.
“The mission for the Think Pink Holiday Shopping Boutique is to give our members and other women in the community the opportunity to shop from each other during the holiday season,” said Jessica Rivelli, founder of Working Women of Tampa Bay. “Local retail sales help support friends, family and neighbors. We believe events like Think Pink help boost our local economy and increase consumer confidence in our community.”
This private shopping event is $5.00 for Working Women of Tampa members and $10.00 for non-members. The first 100 registered guests receive a WWTOB signature shopping bag and a glass of wine.
The following day, members and guests will learn why moms make outstanding entrepreneurs. Emily Ley, creator of Simplified Planner; Robyn Spoto of MamaBear app; and Leigh Harting from 3 Daughters Brewing will share their inspiring stories as part of WWTOB’s Power Lunch series. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on November 20 at Doubletree Suites, 3050 N Rocky Point Dr., Tampa
