CWE also operates the Veterans Business Outreach Center of New England (VBOC of NE) that equips veteran and active duty service members and their families with the resources to help them start and run their businesses.
As New England’s leading organization for women entrepreneurs, we work hard to ensure that all women, regardless of their economic status, are provided access to our programs and services. CWE offers scholarships to disadvantaged clients while fostering influential relationships for successful business women at the other end of the financial spectrum.
The Center for Women & Enterprise provides education, training, resources and connections to women (and men) through Centers in Boston, MA; Westborough, MA; Nashua, NH; Providence, RI; Burlington, VT; and Community Classrooms throughout New England.
In addition, CWE is the New England affiliate for Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), serving as their certification arm for women-owned businesses.
