To fuel success for women-owned businesses, WBENC offers multiple programs and opportunities designed to support business development and growth, from pitch competitions to executive education programs.
WBENC launched the NextGen program in 2017, as part of our 20th anniversary celebration, as a way to nurture the next generation of women entrepreneurs and supplier diversity professionals within the WBENC network. Since then, we have hosted several in-person and virtual events and opportunities, including matchmaking, pitch coaching, education, networking, and community-building.
Are you a WBE or Supplier Diversity professional within the WBENC network under the age of 40? Join our dynamic network of millennials.
As an outreach and development program, the NextGen is open to millennial and Gen Z women business owners, including WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprises and those not yet certified, as well as millennial and Gen Z Supplier Diversity professionals.
The NextGen program hosts regular virtual and in-person programs and events. Sign up to receive the latest updates on upcoming events and opportunities.
