Mission Statement

The mission of BWE is to identify and remove the barriers that impede the success of black women business owners from participating in government and private sector procurement, promote equal access to capital, educate, advocate, reverse industry trends that foster business failure among black women business owners, serve as a referral resource, and serve as a clearing house for all information related to businesses owned by black women. Although BWE's core mission is to serve Black Women Business Owners, we do not discriminate. All are welcome to join.
