Women’s Entrepreneurship Collaboration Council
NewBoCo is dedicated to making Iowa the best place for women to start a business. That’s why we partnered with Iowa Women Lead Change to establish the Women’s Entrepreneurship Collaboration Council.
NewBoCo and Iowa Women Lead Change (IWLC) partnered up to establish WECC and invited 50+ resource organizations and female entrepreneurs from across the state to work together to create and implement collaborative programming.
WECC met for the first time in Des Moines in January 2016 to share statewide resources and programming targeted at women or serving more than 50 percent women. The group discussed challenges facing female entrepreneurs and possible solutions. Now, WECC meets quarterly to convene working groups or create new projects.
If you’re interested in getting involved with WECC, email Jessalyn Holdcraft at firstname.lastname@example.org.
