NAWBO represents over 12.3 million women entrepreneurs that employ 9+ million workers and contribute over $1.7 Trillion to the U.S. Economy.
And yet only 2% of Venture Capital (“VC”) funding has gone to female entrepreneurs. Most female entrepreneurs and business owners have had to be smarter and more strategic about growing their businesses — without capital funding.
In spite of this, women-led startups and businesses are thriving. Studies show they have better return on equity and better operating results. And according to BCG, the numbers are even more positive when diversity and BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of color) are factored in.
An investment in NAWBO is an investment in women business leaders. Be on the right side of this issue.

Transitioning from corporate to my own business was daunting. I quickly realized that I no longer had access to the myriad of resources needed to successfully execute my plan and no brain trust to turn to. Then I discovered NAWBO. The caliber of members is astounding; they truly bring equal parts acumen and sincerity.
