COVID-19 Resources

Women-owned businesses represent 42% of all businesses — nearly 13 million — employing 9.4 million workers and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion. Over the past five years, the annual growth rate in the number of women-owned firms has been more than double that of all businesses. Female founders have fought too hard for a true place in the economy to lose all gains now.

With COVID-19 abruptly and drastically changing the landscape of our economy and disrupting local ecosystems, small businesses are looking for resources and advice to help them navigate these uncertain times and persevere.

As we adjust to the new realities this crisis brings, NWBC remains committed to advocating for the nation’s 13 million women business owners and entrepreneurs. Please email NWBC at and tell us how the Coronavirus is impacting your business. Be sure to stay in touch with us as we work to develop a webinar series on assistance available for small businesses.
