Established in 1995, the Center for Women & Enterprise (CWE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for women entrepreneurs and women in business to increase their professional success, personal growth, and financial independence.
As New England's leading organization for women entrepreneurs, we work hard to ensure that all women, regardless of their economic status, are provided access to our programs and services. CWE offers scholarships to disadvantaged clients while fostering influential relationships for successful business women at the other end of the financial spectrum.
The Center for Women & Enterprise provides education, training, resources and connections to women (and men) through locations in Eastern Massachusetts; Central Massachusetts; New Hampshire; Rhode Island; and Vermont.
In addition, CWE is the New England affiliate for Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), serving as their certification arm for women-owned businesses. WBENC Certification is nationally recognized in helping established women business owners access new corporate contracts with organizations that are actively seeking supplier diversity.
