We are excited for our first Women2Women Tour stop focussed on the issues facing women entrepreneurs and business owners. In Minneapolis, we will have two excellent panels. The first panel will include Kari Rihm, President and CEO of Rihm Kenworth, and Jan Ballman, President and CEO of Paradigm Reporting & Captioning. Kari became the CEO of her company following the tragic death of her husband from brain cancer. She stepped up for the company in a big way and has not only kept Rihm Cos. running, but has expanded the brand to more locations and increased revenue. Jan is one of the most well known and respected court reporters in the mid-west. She started her reporting and captioning business on her skill and speed and her firm now boasts some of the top clients in the region and a digital video broadcasting arm.
The second panel will feature Congressman Tom Emmer, State Representative Roz Peterson, and State Representative Jennifer Loon. All having backgrounds in business and entrepreneurship, these elected officials are experienced in navigating government regulations and using the tools available in federal, state and local government to grow your business.
