Are you ready to get WISE? The 13th annual Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (WISE) Symposium kicks off in Syracuse, NY tomorrow. Among the exciting list of featured speakers is Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

According to WISE’s own website, the organization is: “An initiative to train and inspire women interested in launching or growing a business venture. The objectives of all training and events are to provide information, resources, and support for women entrepreneurs, enabling each to successfully advance their businesses to the next stage of profitability and success. Our goal is to create a thriving community of women entrepreneurs through two initiatives: the one-day WISE Symposium and the year-round WISE Women’s Business Center.”

Aside from Ms. Contreras-Sweet, attendees will be treated to innovative networking opportunities, specialized breakout sessions and a buy local expo.
