Rapport International, LLC Honored to Be Presenting Business Plan for WEI Organization

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Rapport International, LLC is honored to present its business plan to the Women's Enterprise Initiative (WEI) on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 6:15pm at the Newton Free Library, 330 Homer St., Newton Centre. The Women's Enterprise Initiative is an excellent venue for women entrepreneurs to learn from their peers how to grow their business and find the support they need to manage this growth. The event is free and open to the public.

WEI is a self-contained volunteer organization operating under the umbrella of the City of Newton. Organized in 1996, WEI began as a joint venture between the City of Newton Planning and Development Department, New England Women Business Owners (NEWBO) and Pine Manor College. The purpose of the initiative is to assist women in growing businesses. The WEI Business Plan Forums provide women with an opportunity to have their business plans critiqued and prepare them to launch a business idea or expand upon an existing one.

Wendy Pease, owner of Rapport International, LLC, will be presenting her business plan during the October Forum at the City of Newton Free Library. The Forum allows an entrepreneur to present her business plan for evaluation by a panel of financial, legal, and marketing experts for feedback. The audience, comprised of business people and consumers, are also invited to give feedback and pose their own questions to the panel. WEI's goal for the Business Plan Forums is not only to provide intensive help to each presenter whose plan shows promise, but also to serve as both a networking and educational event for those who attend. The connections made through WEI help women gain the skills needed to build their business and claim their dreams as entrepreneurs.
