Description

WEConnect International Networking Event for Women-Owned Businesses in the Netherlands

WEConnect International is a global network that connects women-owned businesses to qualified buyers around the world. Our mission is to help women-owned businesses to succeed in global value chains. Our vision is for a world in which women have the same opportunity as their male counterparts to design and implement business solutions that create wealth and ensure the sustainable prosperity of their communities.

WEConnect International identifies, educates, registers, and certifies women's business enterprises based outside of the US that are at least 51% owned, as well as managed and controlled by one or more women, and then connects them with multinational corporate buyers. A list of our corporate members can be seen here: https://weconnectinternational.org/en/corporate-membership/corporate-members

Our women's business enterprise (WBE) certification is a formal verification for corporations that they are purchasing goods and/or services from women-owned businesses that meet universal standards for certification. Businesses that meet the criteria are determined to be at least 51% owned, as well as, managed and controlled by one or more women.

If your business is corporate/B2B focussed and growth-oriented, WEConnect International can support your success in both local and global markets.
