Event Details

Only 3% of America's more than 11 million women business owners have annual revenue that exceeds $1M. NAWBO and our partners are working to help the women entrepreneurs we support reach this milestone.

Women business owners have unique challenges, fewer resources for support, fewer peers and different needs for learning and development.

Connect and learn from an exciting panel of women who have overcome these and other challenges to break through the $1 million mark—all moderated by a woman who has not only done it but made it her mission to help others do the same.

This event is in collaboration with SCORE NY, Financial Women's Association (FWA), Women in Communications International (WICI), We NYC, BCNA, (Women in Financial Services (WIFS), and What Now What Next. 

We are anticipating a sold out event so reserve your tickets early.

B2B Exhibit Tables are available at $100 each, which includes entry for one attendee.  Exhibit materials are Carry-In / Carry-Out please.  Contact our VP Sponsorship, Victoria Rossi with any questions about reserving an Exhibit Table, but note that Exhibit tables are limited!  First come; first served.
