Rosie is an initiative started by The eFactory and The Network and made possible by a grant to the Missouri State University Foundation for The eFactory from the Women’s Foundation. It helps support, assist and serve as an advocate network for current and prospective female founders, business owners and leaders in the Greater Springfield area.

The goal of Rosie is to help connect, partner, collaborate and continue to increase the support and access to resources for women as it relates to professional development, business assistance and leadership.

Membership is free of charge and open to everyone. As a Rosie member, you will be connected to an advocate and mentorship network, business and professional development resources, events, board training and a board pipeline program.
