Let’s take a look at some of the top non-profit organizations that are focused on empowering women-owned businesses.
Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce (CWCC)
The CWCC helps bridge the gap between large corporations and small businesses in order to create a more equitable, diverse marketplace for everyone involved. With programs such as their Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program, they strive to provide women with the tools needed to lead successful companies and foster relationships with each other and larger companies. They are also committed to creating an environment where female entrepreneurs can thrive by advocating for fair pay, equitable access to capital, and quality healthcare coverage for employees of all sizes.
TARRA is committed to helping women entrepreneurs achieve their dreams. Their co-working and community space provides an inclusive, empowering environment for building a network of successful professionals. Through their engaging newsletter, they bring support from partners who champion female business owners and offer events with resources that enable all types of growth in the entrepreneurial world.
SecondAct Women is an online community dedicated to inspiring and supporting women over 40 who want to make career changes or launch new businesses later in life. This platform provides members with resources such as courses on topics like starting your own business or building an effective website as well as networking opportunities so they can connect with other like-minded individuals who share similar goals and experiences. Additionally, SecondAct Women offers one-on-one career coaching sessions so members can get personalized guidance from experts in various industries who have experience helping midlife women transition into new careers or launch successful businesses.
Mi Casa Resource Center
Mi Casa Resource Center is a non-profit organization based in Denver dedicated to helping low-income Latinas become self-sufficient by providing them with resources such as education, childcare services, job training programs, and small business loans so they can realize their dreams of owning their own businesses one day. Mi Casa also offers bilingual classes on topics such as budgeting, credit management, computer skills, and marketing strategies so Latina entrepreneurs can gain valuable knowledge that will help them succeed in their fields while also teaching them how best to manage their finances during times of financial hardship or market volatility. Additionally, Mi Casa partners with corporations in order to offer internships and apprenticeships as well as mentorship programs aimed at giving students hands-on experience while building meaningful relationships within the community at large which will help them establish themselves professionally once they enter the workforce after graduation or start up their own enterprises one day down the road.
