To stimulate and support sustainable economic growth and prosperity for a diverse population of women by providing microenterprise businesses with strategies, resources and business incubation, and a trusted source for information and guidance
The impact of economic development can only be achieved when there are small businesses and jobs in local communities with a structured and clear path for the support of strategic business success. Data shows evidence that, 50 percent of job creation will come from women-owned businesses by 2018. Therefore, the focus of Women Empowered for Entrepreneurial Excellence is the incubation and acceleration of women entrepreneurs toward the growth and longevity of their business to free standing companies. The multiplier effect that happens when business revenues catalyze more jobs and workforce growth while supporting the financial stability of families, contribute meaningful impact to the economic stability of neighborhoods and communities.
WEEE has formed a physical incubator located in McKees Rocks, PA for microenterprise and small business growth to reinforce a collaborative business culture and develop entrepreneurial skills among women. The intention of the incubator is to diminish the isolation of nascent entrepreneurs and encourage the collective harnessing of entrepreneurial vigor and increase the possibilities of success by providing an environment of opportunity for peer support, shared learning experiences and business growth. The incubator has interest in attracting business women who are operating informal businesses, home based businesses and/or college educated women entrepreneurs who may have been displaced from corporate America and have sound business concepts or innovations.
