Women Owned is Coming to Detroit!


Women Owned is an initiative from WBENC and WEConnect International to create a movement of support for Women Owned businesses. We support female entrepreneurs and those who do business with them by raising awareness for why, where and how to buy Women Owned.

This year's WBENC National Conference & Business Fair in Detroit is no exception! We are bringing plenty of ways to learn more about the Women Owned Logo program, discover innovative Women Owned businesses and products, and show your support for Women Owned businesses.

After a busy day on the Business Fair floor,  head to Detroit’s historic Eastern Market for our evening event to unwind, network, and yes - do a little shopping.

At this year's National Conference & Business Fair, we're thrilled to be re-launching our WBENC Shop, which will feature all new products to show your support for Women Owned businesses, or show off your status as a WBENC-Certified WBE. Powered by Innovative Marketing & Design, the WBENC Shop will have new WBENC and Women Owned branded products for sale at the Business Fair on Wednesday, June 20 and online at www.shopwbenc.com.
