NAWBO Silicon Valley Education Group

A 501c3 Corporation


In 2007 a group of dedicated NAWBO Silicon Valley Chapter members had a vision to provide business development learning opportunities and entrepreneurial education for diverse women owned businesses and emerging entrepreneurs. The vision became a reality in 2009 when the NAWBO Silicon Valley Education Group completed the requirements for a 501c3 California Mutual Benefit Corporation.

The NAWBO Education Group has since sponsored three women business owners for the UCLA Anderson School of Business Management Entrepreneurial Program.


The primary objectives and purpose of this corporation shall be to:


To support diverse women business owners to build and grow their business, to encourage them to contribute to charitable causes and give back to the community at large.
