  • History

    Since 1998 the Women’s Business Roundtable Event has brought together female entrepreneurs and professionals in order to share ideas and inspire one another. The ASU-SBDC and First Financial Bank (Then San Angelo National Bank) were the first sponsors of the event.

    The first Women’s Business Roundtable was designed as a lunch event with only approximately 30 women in attendance. Each year, as the event grew in popularity and attendance, new features to the event were added including the vendors/exhibitor booths, a keynote speaker, door prizes, and most recently, the desserts and discussion portion of the evening.

    This year’s event is expected to draw over 150 women from around the Concho Valley to the Cactus Hotel to network, gain new knowledge for their business, and have fun.
