Founded in 1975, the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is the unified voice of over 9 million women-owned businesses in the United States. Our GREATER RALEIGH chapter has supported NC women business owners for over 35 years.

If you had access to SUCCESSFUL women business owners, what would you ask them? If you could participate in WORKSHOPS that helped to grow your business, what new places might you be able to take your business? If you have a NETWORK of supportive women business owner colleagues to call on, how would your drive and energy as a women business owner flourish

Being a women business owner can be challenging. At NAWBO Greater Raleigh, we mean business, and we show it by supporting our excellent members. With engaging events, supportive round tables, educational workshops, and excellent strategic partners, we accelerate our women business owner members and advocate as their voice in our local community. Do you mean business? If so...
