We continue to develop training and networking opportunities to empower women business owners to grow their business. We are now also working to support women business owners at every stage of their business growth. We don’t compete with other service providers; we build relationships with the experts and the agencies in the area and collaborate with them to bring a wide and strong net of support to the business owner.

We are activating the movement of supporting our area’s economic development by supporting the business success of our local woman business owners – that support needs to be both from women and men!

Did You Know?

Did you know that “Although women start businesses at twice the rate of men, only 2% of female-owned businesses break the $1 million threshold in terms of revenues.” What’s keeping many female-owned businesses from reaching their full potential?

Become a Benefactor

Time and time again, experts say it boils down to a few factors: a lack of capital and the need for more guidance and mentoring of female entrepreneurs. In Western New York our local businesses are a massive contributor to the health of our community and economy. Imagine the potential outcome if we work together to close this gap!
