Special thanks to our sponsors, donors, volunteers and staff for your generosity in helping CWE help women and veteran entrepreneurs realize their dreams of becoming successful, prosperous business owners We are so grateful that you could join us to celebrate and support them in business.
With your help we raised over $350,000 to help women and veterans transform their lives and create opportunities for them to become economically self-sufficient and prosperous through business and entrepreneurship.
The evening was dedicated to Susan Loconto Penta, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of MIDIOR Consulting and the Chair of the Center for Women & Enterprise from 2010 to 2016. During her tenure CWE has grown, expanded and reached new heights in order to deliver and improve our services to more people in more places.
