Thank you, Sylvia, for sharing pivotal information to our listeners as a voice for the SBA. NAWRB is proud to be one of only 11 of SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business Resource Partners.

Many small businesses are owned by women, and women entrepreneurs have notoriously faced hardships in gaining access to capital, from lack of information and resources and local and state government assistance, to facing cultural biases from investors. For more information on innovative ways women entrepreneurs can gain access to capital, purchase your copy of the 2019 NAWRB Women Housing Ecosystem Report (WHER) here! 

The 2019 NAWRB WHER is the third installment of the most diverse coverage of the Housing Ecosystem with over sixty resources in six volumes: Diversity & Inclusion, Homeownership, Women-Owned Businesses, STEM, Aging Population, and Family Offices with a gender lens perspective.
