How the SBDC Can Help You – Overview of Best Practices During Covid19

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. August 26, 2015. Buffalo, New York

The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Buffalo Niagara Chapter is jumping into the autumn season by giving face to Western New York’s women entrepreneurs. These women represent myriad professions and industries, from construction to coaching, marketing to manufacturing, law to technology. They represent the very face of Western New York.

The campaign meets NAWBO’s objective of reinforcing a place for women entrepreneurs as innovative  decision-makers and drivers of the Buffalo Niagara economy. “Women business owners work hard growing their businesses like men do but, often, they remain faceless,” said Sabina Ramsey, the local chapter’s president. She continued, “NAWBO wants to ensure that Western New York recognizes and celebrates all the accomplishments that have been made locally and regionally by women entrepreneurs. These women have decades of experience and the energy to contribute meaningfully to WNY’s growing entrepreneurial energy.”

Said Ramsey, “NAWBO is intent on growing its local chapter and increasing the number of women business owners who have access to our education, networking, and advocacy initiatives. For us it means becoming more attractive to minority women business owners and those women who own businesses within the STEM fields.When we each individually succeed, we increase the opportunities for every woman in business and, indeed, for our region as a whole.”
