8,000 women business owners can't be wrong

The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is committed to supporting and representing the interests of women entrepreneurs in all industries.

With over 8,000 members nationwide and nine California chapters, including one in San Diego, NAWBO empowers its members to achieve greater visibility, credibility and profitability. NAWBO membership offers women business owners valuable resources and educational opportunities.

The San Diego chapter has approximately 100 members representing all types of businesses, including construction, public relations, real estate, law, finance, food services and more.

Through monthly meetings and access to the Women's Business Center of California, members have the chance to attend seminars, hear speakers and learn more about the local business climate.

NAWBO's monthly functions, which are open to members and guests, are educational as well as excellent networking opportunities. And NAWBO's persistent lobbying efforts in Sacramento assure that women business owners have a voice in shaping public policy that affects small business owners.

Women entrepreneurs in San Diego County own 38 percent of all businesses, employ 41 percent of the county's workers and generate over $26 billion in sales. Nationwide, women own nearly 8 million businesses, or more than one-third of all American companies. Minority-women-owned firms are increasing at triple the national rate.

Since 1975, NAWBO has brought women entrepreneurs together to support each other, influence legislation and grow their businesses. As a small business advocate, NAWBO gives women who are currently in business, as well as those considering business ownership, a chance to learn new skills and become informed about issues unique to entrepreneurial business models.
