Sweetie Pie's Robbie Montgomery to be Keynote Speaker at 2018 WIB Challenge

The Urban League of Louisiana will be hosting their 2018 Women In Business Challenge (WIB) on March 21. The challenge, sponsored by Square Inc./MasterCard, will be held at the New Orleans Jazz Market from 3:00-7:00 p.m.
The Challenge provides female entrepreneurs with the education, tools, and resources needed to scale their businesses towards profitability and sustainability. For nine weeks, ten semi-finalists participated in a comprehensive business education program, received technical assistance and counseling services, and were introduced to various resources to support their growth plans. Four finalists were selected to advance to the pitch competition.

During the pitch challenge an esteemed panel of judges will be tasked with determining the winner based on the effectiveness of the pitch presentation, scalability of the business model, and strategic use of award funds. A celebrated keynote speaker will also provide a motivational address prior to the announcement of the 2018 WIB Challenge winner.  This year’s keynote speaker is Miss Robbie Montgomery.
