PEER NETWORKING & PROFESSIONAL GROWTH

Networking

  • NAWBO offers women business owners a national and local platform to tap into the power of an established community of women entrepreneurs.
  • Our NAWBO NYC events and online communications and groups promote interconnectedness between members to leverage the evolving, more networked, business environment – both in NYC and when visiting other chapter cities. We warmly welcome new members and encourage relationships among our growing community.

Mastermind Groups

We all need ongoing support as entrepreneurs. In this monthly meeting, your group of women business owner peers shares problems, successes, ask advice and help develop solutions on a confidential basis. NAWBO NYC Mastermind Groups launch on a rotational basis. Premier/ Established members interested in participating should email us.

Mentorship Programs

The NAWBO NYC Mentoring Program was created to help women business owners achieve excellent results in their businesses and their lives. Our members have experienced the power and enjoyment of receiving personal support from qualified women business owners that lead to breakthroughs, strengthen business acumen and gain confidence in their leadership skills. Interested Mentees and Mentors, find our more about the program, application, and deadlines.

PROGRAMMING

  • Our programs are mostly educational and focus on members’ needs to support their successful business growth.
  • Programs encompass morning, lunchtime and evening events, typically starting with networking followed by an expert speaker sharing insights and answering questions on topics including leadership, sales, marketing, finance, and public policy; plus programs on work/life balance, time management, health and other topics of interest to our members.

The NAWBO NYC Blog launches later this month!

As a benefit of your membership, you are invited to submit a blog post that NAWBO NYC will help amplify through our newsletter, our website, and our social media channels – reaching an audience of over 2,500 women business owners. All blogs must meet editorial guidelines for us to consider publication, including:

  • Authored by a NAWBO NYC member, sponsor or speaker
  • Content must be of interest to NAWBO NYC members and pertain to issues facing women business owners
  • Blogs should include actionable advice and takeaway that members can apply to their business TODAY – it’s about quality content showcasing your expertise, and not a commercial for your business
  • Length of no more than 700 words

Other tips?  Make it timely, make it interesting, making it something you would like to read and that has value to our membership.  To submit a blog post, please click here, or contact Lauren Banyar Reich with any questions.
