What we're about

Entrepreneurial moms meet and network with each other. Anyone who owns a business, wants to own one, is working on a creative venture, or wants to be around other business women in Chicago, Oak Park/River Forest and surrounding suburbs can be a part of this meetup. You do not have to be a business owner yet.

This Exchange is about networking, helping each other through trials and tribulations, questions, problems, educating, and empowering each other. We will invite special speakers and some of our own members on interesting topics. And, of course, we will discuss our kids, too!

We want to know more about you and your venture. We don't sell to or recruit fellow members--we provide a safe haven away from all that. Let's take each other's businesses out to our own networks and help each other thrive.

We encourage you to visit The Founding Moms ( to read more about mom entrepre ( ( everywhere.
