Apply for Roundtables

The NAWBO Columbus Roundtables program provides both first-time and experienced business owners with a confidential, supportive venue to share ideas, insights, advice, and inspiration.

Each Roundtable consists of 5-9 women business owners who meet monthly to discuss the individual challenges, concerns and triumphs that come with owning your own business. Each of the participants is a woman who understands the pressures of business ownership and has relevant experience to share. We currently have general roundtables for all types of businesses, no matter what the size or how long they've been in business.

Roundtables are complimentary and are one of the many benefits exclusively available to NAWBO Columbus Premier Members. Members may apply to join a Roundtable anytime throughout the year.

Who Can Apply

Roundtables are open to NAWBO Columbus Premier Members.

When Do They Meet

Each group will meet regularly and determine the best meeting times and schedule for its members. Experience has shown a regularly scheduled monthly meeting develops trust and continuity.

Where Do They Meet

Meeting location will be at the discretion of the group. Groups often trade off hosting meetings at their individual business locations or at a restaurant or cafe.

What Do They Do

The groups set their own agenda based on business owners’ needs, but are also able to pull resources from a curated Resource Bank that NAWBO provides. This resource bank includes speakers, leadership assessments, recommended books and podcasts and much more.
