Our Story

“Connecting with fellow young, female entrepreneurs has been incredible, showing me that there are other young women who are putting their ideas into action and who are rooting for me on my entrepreneurial journey. The spirit of NAWBO has paved the path for the next generation of female entrepreneurs. The NAWBO National community has been very welcoming, providing a place for the next generation to thrive, collaborate and connect.”

“I enjoy each event I have attended at NAWBO. It affirms the path I am on and has impacted me to continue doing my best in each setting. During the most recent event, I learned about having safe boundaries and the power of showing up. I have been building relationships and look forward to this year. I appreciate the people who are in my life to help develop me as a new business owner. I will honor their relationships, and look forward to getting more young women involved with NAWBO.

“I felt connected, suddenly, with a tribe of very powerful and inspiring women with similar initiative in the business/ entrepreneurial world to me. It is not a common feeling in the small sphere of my regular dayto-day life. It was uplifting and empowering to participate in the events and to feel supported by a group of intentional, like-minded women giving of their time and energy. The workshops I attended motivated me on my path and gave me courage to face adversity.”
