25th Anniversary Sponsors
Innovate with WBENC

Innovate with WBENC is a year-long event initiative to foster and empower innovation during our 25th year. This year-long series will feature a variety of opportunities for both WBEs and Corporate Members to better share and understand the needs, opportunities, and challenges around innovation, learn foundational knowledge needed for innovation, and finally a platform for WBEs and Corporate Members to connect and bring innovative ideas to the next level.  

The series launched in March with the month-long series Innovate with WBENC: Discover, designed to provide foundational knowledge on innovation needs within specific industries. The series will culminate in the exclusive November at the in-person event where WBEs will have the opportunity to pitch their innovative ideas directly to Corporate Members.

National Conference
