Welcome to our 6th annual Illuminate Conference!

Vend Raleigh is an influential collective that inspires and propels successful companies. Created for the mompreneur, Vend Raleigh has expanded to include more than 3,000 female business owners from all walks of life. By collaborating with women from diverse work-backgrounds, we’ve established a culture of creativity, connectivity and community. (Look for the tag #vendraleigh on Instagram and see for yourself!)

The Illuminate Conference brings small business leaders together to grow personally and professionally via carefully designed, interactive topic sessions. This year, we’re talking self-care, finding your tribe, and bringing community into your business.



col·lec·tive: a cooperative enterprise, done by people acting as a group, belonging to all the members of a group, taken as a whole
