About WEConnect

WEConnect is a corporate-led nonprofit that empowers women business owners to succeed in global markets. Headquartered in Washington, DC, since its founding in 2008, WEConnect identifies, educates, registers and certifies women’s business enterprises based outside of the US. WEConnect is making history by connecting these women business owners to our multinational corporate members that collectively represent over US$700 billion in annual purchasing power.

Focus on Women’s Empowerment

Identifying and certifying women’s business enterprises, and educating women entrepreneurs on business and financial matters are key steps to increasing procurement opportunities for women who want to contribute to the global value chains of corporations and governments. WEConnect is empowering women business owners by providing the knowledge, networks, certification and platform needed to reach new markets and prosper. WEConnect is active in some of the most and least developed countries that together represent over 40 percent of the world’s population.
