Congressional Resolution Congratulates Organization on its 40th Anniversary

(Washington, DC) -- U.S. Congresswomen Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) have introduced a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives to commend the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) for “its tireless efforts and decades of support of women entrepreneurs and business owners.” H.Res.276 also congratulates NAWBO on the 40th anniversary.

“We are so grateful to Representatives Maloney and Blackburn for sponsoring this resolution in Congress. Their leadership is truly appreciated. Since our founding 40 years ago, NAWBO has advocated for the elimination of state laws requiring women entrepreneurs to have a male co-signatory for business loans, the creation of the National Women’s Business Council, and ensuring women entrepreneurs and the contributions they make to our economy are understood and being counted,” asserted Darla Beggs, NAWBO National Board Chair. “Today, we are proud to serve as the only voice of all women entrepreneurs regardless of sector, size or stage in development. We will continue our work to expand opportunities for women entrepreneurs and look forward to working with Congresswomen Maloney and Blackburn who have distinguished themselves by standing up for women business owners.”

NAWBO was established in 1975 by a group of like-minded businesswomen to serve as the collective voice of women business owners across the country and advocate on behalf of their entrepreneurial interests. These women understood that the rules and laws being passed in Washington, DC and in State Capitols across the country could either help or harm their ability to succeed in business. So they united in a mission to advocate with their elected officials on behalf of themselves and all women business owners.

H.Res.276 cites the important contribution women business owners have and continue to make to the U.S. economy, and acknowledges the valuable role NAWBO has played to “create a business-friendly environment at the national, State, and local levels to enable women to start and grow their businesses and create jobs.”

YEA NAWBO Columbus Business News Report

YEA NAWBO Columbus Business News Report- Summer 2015

On November 3, 2014 the YEA NAWBO Columbus students came together and met for the first time. Though all mostly strangers from different schools and grades from around central Ohio, they started their journey together.

After many weeks, many ideas, let-downs and successes, support from instructors, mentors and guest speakers, the students had formed their business plans.

On April 14th, 2015, each student graced the stage with their presentation in front of their family, peers and most importantly the investors. With their fantastic presentations they sold their ideas to the panel of judges. Ultimately, each business walked away with funding.

But where are they now?

  • Abraham Sanchez and Leona Bergman have now graduated high school and will start college in the fall.
  • Although Abraham fell short on funding to launch Mirabela, he has not lost his desire to be a business owner. He has focused his efforts on his existing Amway business and will travel extensively this summer.
  • Leona has already attended several art fairs to recruit clients. She has used some funds to purchase flyers and business cards for marketing.
  • Michael Musilli and Sam Owens have been actively pursuing Palletable, purchasing tools and marketing materials. They also continue to run their lawn care business ProMow.
  • Noah placed a large order with his supplier and is beginning to sell his T-Shirts.
  • Alice has registered her business with the County Clerk’s Office and is officially a Sole Proprietorship.
  • Muskan missed our official graduation ceremony while on her class trip to D.C. She continues to run her social media accounts to further her product awareness.
  • Brooke competed in the regional competition in New York, was invited to participate in an angel fund program and has trademarked her name and logo.
