Who can Join NAWBO Greater Raleigh?

Our main membership categories are for women business owners. NAWBO Greater Raleigh is for: 

  • business owners seeking authentic, supportive business relationships

  • local women interested in mentorship opportunities

  • women whose businesses could benefit from support, knowledge, and resources from other women business owners

We're not a lead group (we’re about building relationships and less focused on e-mail lists), and we're not a social club (we work hard and mean business) – but of course, we have fun growing our businesses, our expertise, and our support network!

 

An Individual who is not a business owner, or a Non-Profit Organization, who subscribes to the objectives of NAWBO and wishes to lend support to NAWBO through membership can join as a Supporting Member; this category of membership includes limited discounts and is listed in the online member directory
