Resources to fuel your business growth

Women-owned businesses drive the New York economy. They create opportunities and better living conditions for the entire community. Yet, women find it harder than men to tap the information, funding and networks needed to get a business off the ground or grow it.

The NYWIB alliance understands the challenges women face.That’s why we’ve come together to meet the needs of women entrepreneurs like you.

NYWIB was founded in 2016 by and is part of SCORE NYC, a partner resource of the Small Business Administration. SCORE is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration. Today, NYWIB is an alliance of eight professional organizations focused on elevating women professionals and entrepreneurs. We share expertise, connections and talent to boost your success.
