A new year is synonymous with new opportunities. This includes new opportunities to increase business competitiveness and local or international growth. With this in mind, NAWBO knows that one of the greatest challenges women business owners face in today’s market is growing from Point A to Point B. New and innovative tactics are necessary for continuous improvement—to propel a business from survival to success.
As the economy emerges from this recession, NAWBO helps prepare women business owners with the tools, strategies and foresight necessary to succeed in the changing economic climate. In addition to our annual Women’s Business Conference—which will be held August 31-September 1, 2011 in San Diego, California—NAWBO is proud to introduce The Institute’s Accelerated Growth Series set to launch this spring. This premiere capacity-building education program, designed exclusively for the women’s entrepreneurial community, aims to promote economic development for women business owners through comprehensive assessment of 3- to 5-year business plans for strategic growth; tiered curriculum that addresses all stages of the business cycle; networking opportunities within a community of peers dedicated to each other’s success; business workshops with renowned experts; and exclusive benefits from program partners and sponsors.
Meanwhile, NAWBO National and your local chapter are here to support you all year long with the very best information, resources and connections you need to continue to power your dream.
Happy New Year!
