Honerees All 01 scaled

Please join the Women’s Business Center (WBC) at Canisius University for our 7th Annual Ignite Awards Luncheon on May 10, 2024 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Science Hall Commons at Canisius University. 

The need to support and celebrate women-owned businesses is vital.  The impact of women-owned businesses is undeniable.  14 million or 39.1% of all US firms  are owned by women and they employ 12.2 million people.  These women-owned firms generate $2.7 trillion in revenues or 5.8% of total firm revenue nationally.

However, many barriers still exist for women entrepreneurs.  Women could make an even greater impact if the gaps between between women and men, as well as women of color (WOC) and white women-owned businesses, were closed.  With support from organizations like ours with people like you, women will make an even greater economic impact. 

Locally, the WBC has helped thousands of unique individuals/businesses over the last 20 years including an increasing number of Black or minority-owned businesses.  Our clients launch new businesses and they hire 100s employees.  With our assistance women are able to access more capital and generate more in revenues.

Come help us as we continue to assist women entrepreneurs!  And you will be inspired by the honorees’ success stories and enjoy the networking opportunities at this large and popular event.  You don’t want to miss this luncheon! 

Let’s take this opportunity to join forces to create greater success for us women here in Buffalo!
