Dear NAWBO Silicon Valley Members & Friends,

2020 has been a tumultuous year and we have been by your side.

Early into shelter-in-place we reinvented our way of communicating and staying connected with you by creating a virtual meeting platform. Our Educational and Networking Meetings continue every 3rd Tuesday of the month, and on the 1st Thursday of the month, respectively. We developed Thirsty Thursday to encompass a casual atmosphere for our members to network and get to know each other’s business and their needs & wants.

Last month we announced the launch of our new Member’s Only Newsletter to share valuable information just for our members, in conjunction with our CONNECTIONS Newsletter, which gives our corporate partners and affiliates the opportunity to share pertinent information with our subscribers.

We also reengaged with our alliances and created new partnerships. Join us on January 19th and meet our Corporate Partners  and Affiliates  to explore business opportunities, to get to know them, and the importance of why the partnerships were developed.

NAWBO National has also been busy with their weekly virtual Lunch & Learn programing and Community Connects where members across the nation can share best practices and support one another.

The Institute for Entrepreneurial Development remains open to all women business owners. The platform facilitates communication, virtual networking, best practice sharing, and education for Women Business owners, partners and supporters with measurable and significant impact.

Don’t miss the latest opportunity to qualify for the NAWBO Accelerated Growth Program sponsored by Wells Fargo, a premier suite of learning modules designed to help women business owners scale through high-level education and mentorship. This program for just 25 participants will increase their market competitiveness and position them to achieve the next stage of growth and expansion. Deadline to apply is Monday, December 14th.

As we approach years end, we are hopeful for a safe and robust 2021.

Happy Holidays from the team Griselda, Maxine, Flor, Marina, Robin, Megan and Randi.
