NWBC 2020 #LetsTalkBusiness Roundtable Series

About this Event

The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) is an independent federal advisory committee established to provide advice and policy recommendations to the U.S. President, Congress, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) on issues related to women’s business enterprise. In doing so, the Council regularly convenes women business owners and entrepreneurs from across the country to connect their voices to policymakers in Washington, DC.

NWBC will hold its first #LetsTalkBusiness Roundtable of the year in partnership with the Federal Affairs Administration of the Government of Puerto Rico on February 27, 2020 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

High-level government officials, SBA resources partners, lenders, women business owners and entrepreneurs, and other key stakeholders will convene to discuss one of the Council’s key policy initiatives: Access to Capital and Opportunity.

The discussion will center on issues impacting women business owners and entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico, particularly in the wake of ongoing recovery efforts following devastating natural disasters such as Hurricane Maria and the most recent earthquakes. Participants will also be asked to share how financial education and creditworthiness impact an entrepreneur’s ability to access credit or capital to start or grow an enterprise. The group will also dedicate some time to exploring these important topics within the framework of recent federal disaster recovery efforts and available lending tools to small business owners.

This Roundtable will serve as the springboard for the Council’s policy recommendations to Congress, the President, and the Administrator of the SBA.
