WEConnect International is a global network that connects women-owned businesses to qualified buyers around the world.
WEConnect International helps drive money into the hands of women business owners by enabling them to compete in the global marketplace.
A world in which women have the same opportunities as men to design and implement business solutions that create wealth and the sustainable prosperity of their communities.
WEConnect International connects member buyers to women-owned sellers globally, enhances their capabilities to transact business and instills confidence that sellers meet buyers’ standards for women-owned businesses.
We break down the barriers that prevent women business owners from connecting to each other and to new market opportunities, including connections to local and multinational member buyers.
We educate women business owners on how to access new markets and grow their companies, and buyers on how to identify and source from women-owned businesses.
We identify women-owned businesses, assess their readiness to access new markets, and deliver a certification for Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs) wanting to do business with large buyers committed to global supplier diversity and inclusion.
