Helping Women-Owned Businesses Thrive in Big Retail

Women-owned businesses are behind some of the most innovative, game-changing consumer products on the market, driving industry trends and reinventing product categories. But the path from product development to retail success can be a daunting one, particularly for women entrepreneurs who are much less likely to receive start-up capital to fund their business.

WBENC has teamed up with Target Corporation, Lowe’s Companies, Inc., Macy’s, Inc., The Home Depot to demystify the process with Women Owned in Retail, a program designed to help women-owned business with consumer goods scale and thrive in the retail space.

This program is open to ALL women-owned businesses with consumer products. You do not need to be certified by WBENC to attend Women Owned in Retail events.
