The Power of Women Entrepreneurs
Women entrepreneurs not only financially empower themselves, but they improve the lives and strengthen the economy for the people and communities around them. At CWE we call this impact "The Multiplier Effect." Yet, the story that is most often told in the news and as part of conferences and learning events is focused on what women entrepreneurs lack: access to capital (banks, VC, PE), childcare, support systems, etc.
CWE's First Women at the Center Event shines a spotlight on what women business owners already have and already do for all of us. Women entrepreneurs financially empower themselves and their families, they are actively engaged in their local community through civic and philanthropic leadership, and they put dollars into the economy through taxes, job creation, vendors, real estate, benefits, consumer spending and more. Hear from an amazing panel of women entrepreneurs from across New England who share their experience as business, community, and economic builders.
