CLEVELAND, OHIO (November 19, 2019) – Each November, 144 countries and 110 universities around the world celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED). This year, Cleveland’s WED took place at smARTspace at 78th Street Studios. The day brought together aspiring and successful women entrepreneurs from across Northeast Ohio to celebrate, support and empower women in business. Growth Opps was a proud sponsor of WED Cleveland.
