WASHINTON, D.C., September 6, 2019 – As part of it’s ‘Women in Small Business Roundtable’ series, the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) will convene local women business owners and entrepreneurs, educators, investors, and community leaders, on September 17, 2019, in Los Angeles, California, to listen to their perspectives on the barriers that affect a woman entrepreneur’s access to capital.
Women-led firms struggle to obtain mainstream forms of funding and compete for federal contracts. At NWBC, we will continue to prioritize this challenge and strive to make inroads for women-owned businesses in acquiring capital for their businesses.
The roundtable will explore the challenges and opportunities for women’s entrepreneurship by delving into the topic of access to capital, with a specific focus on issues related to credit access, federal procurement, and venture capital. The conversation will serve as the springboard for the Council’s policy recommendations to Congress, the President, and the Administrator of the Small Business Administration as they relate to issues surrounding women entrepreneurs and business owners.
