The GWEN Story...

After all, we all have one!
Right now in North America more new businesses are being started by women than men...

... they’re lasting longer and seeing greater success! Female entrepreneurs are passionate, ambitious, and we ARE a force to be reckoned with!

Growing Women Entrepreneurs, or GWEn for short, was created by independent financial and business advisor Jennifer Wallace to fill a need she saw in the Greater Niagara Region for professional development geared to women entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, small business owners, and even those considering self-employment.

GWEn’s mandate is to Educate. Inspire. Connect. This is achieved through event-based professional, personal development and networking opportunities. Events will showcase experts in their fields offering you tips and tactics that you can implement into your business and your life in order to get you closer to your goals.

Since its inception in 2012, GWEn has focussed on an annual conference held in October, however after receiving feedback from the growing GWEn community of supportive female entrepreneurs, more programming and opportunities to connect with others are being introduced in 2016. We look forward to connecting with you, so that we can connect you with others to help and support you in your business!
