About the event

Join us for a fun collaboration networking event with the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce and Excuse Us While We Succeed! Wood Berry Gallery is a gorgeous contemporary art gallery in Downtown Saluda. We will provide a nice spread of hors d'oeuvres, a couple varietals of wine, an option of beer, bottled water and name tags. 

'Tis the season! We don't want money to be the reason you don't join us, therefore we have implemented a 'Pay What You Want' policy for this event. You must register here. Payment amounts, or lack thereof, are kept confidential. 

Would you like to speak to the group? We have only 4 openings for women only to sponsor this event. Sponsors are allowed to make 5 minute 'Acceleration Speeches'. This speech is not meant to be a traditional sales pitch. Tell us a story, how did you get to where you are now, advice for new or struggling entrepreneurs, etc. Use this time to educate, inspire, motivate and empower! Together we meet here, experienced and novice to share, laugh, witness, and lift up one another. As each of us find new levels of success, we give back to those just beginning. The Sponsorship ticket price of $50 includes a 5 minute speech, room to display promotional materials on the Sponsors Table, food and drink, and your business name on all marketing materials displayed that evening. These are non-compete sponsorships; meaning we will allow only 1 of each profession on the panel. 

There will be a raffle! If you would like to bring something to enter into the raffle drawing, please do! Anyone who brings something of value for the raffle can introduce themselves before the Sponsors for 30 seconds.

Because this is a collaboration with the Foothills Chamber of Commerce, this event is open to men who would like to support Excuse Us While We Succeed and the mission of the group. Our Mission: We are a society for female entrepreneurs that supports and provides resources for new and seasoned women in business, or anyone that has that dream. We are the heartbeat of female visionaries, everywhere. We are women building businesses, and creating our own definitions of success! No woman should have to wonder if she has enough guts or money or experience to bring her idea into the world. All women, regardless of age, race, background, beliefs or orientation have a voice in our community. There is no room for judgment here, because we all start from a place of hope and lean into those who have paved the way. We are mothers, daughters, friends, partners, and students and WE. BUILD. BUSINESSES.
