altMaking Connections with the Women Who Are Making Things Happen

Over the past decade, the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs has proven itself as a gathering place for serious, successful women. Of our membership, nearly 50% are presidents or CEOs of their own companies, and 22% are venture capitalists.

Our members are committed, and regularly attend our programs because they know they'll receive real value for the time spent: valuable personal introductions that grow over time to helpful relationships, information that has solid impact on growing small to mid-size businesses, and an environment that understands and supports the entrepreneurial process. 

 Why Become an AWE Sponsor?

AWE sponsors gain access to, and get to know, the women who are changing Philadelphia's business landscape --with special emphasis on first-time and "serial" entrepreneurs.  You'll make important connections with those who will change Philadelphia's future -- the students and young professionals who will make the next moves. In short, you'll reach to women who are looking for the best financial, legal, lifestyle help and support.
