Photo of two women at a WELD eventWomen entrepreneurs fuel the economy. Women-owned businesses are a collective force to be reckoned with and their combined economic impact cannot be ignored. Women are starting businesses at rates never witnessed before, adding jobs, creating wealth and strengthening communities.  Surrounding these entrepreneurs with a community of support is central to their success. WELD is part of that community and we proudly welcome entrepreneurs to our programs and events to grow their leadership skills and expand their connections.

One of the best investments a community with a struggling economy can make is to invest in women-owned businesses and microenterprises.  Incremental earnings achieved by these businesses are reinvested in families, back into the businesses and into communities.

WELD supports the leadership development and business growth of women entrepreneurs and their teams.  Our programs build their leadership skills and provide them opportunities to make meaningful connections – business building connections, peer-to-peer connections and mentorship connections.  The variety of membership levels we offer provide options for microenterprises all the way up to large corporations.
