SourcingTeam UK(June 29, 2017) WEConnect International recently held its first ever photo contest for women-owned businesses. We received nearly 100 entries from 11 countries and named 5 finalists who are now in the running for a grand prize. Though The Sourcing Team's entry was not chosen for the final round, we wanted to share their photos and a little more about the company. If one of the photos looks familiar, it's because we loved it so much that we included it on our booth at the WBENC National Business Fair last week in Las Vegas, NV.
