Corporate Partnership and Sponsorship Opportunities

NAWBO Columbus is pleased to offer a wide variety of options for companies who are interested in partnering with our organization.

There is a reason we have corporate partners and not sponsors. We want a two-way street: you help us grow our organization and grow our member businesses, and we in turn will help you reach your company’s goals and form meaningful relationships.

Whether you become a year-round corporate partner or a meeting sponsor, purchase a table at our annual Visionary Awards gala, or advertise on our website, we're excited at the opportunity to welcome you to the NAWBO Columbus community.
