What participants said about the Disability Owned Convening…

“I had no idea there were so many people who experience disabilities, some fairly significant and closer to mine, who were business owners! Thank you, guys, for putting that on! It left me wanting more.”

“I was extremely intimidated about starting a business with the intense health challenges I have been facing… After watching the sessions, my hope was rekindled that I too can succeed as a small business person.”

“There were so many really good sessions and as with any good conference I wanted to go to all of the breakouts at certain times!”
