Awesome Women Entrepreneurs originally started when Karen Bate and Evelyn Powers, friends for over a decade, would go on long runs discussing life, children and inevitably, clients. They thought it would be fun to connect and commiserate with all of the awesome women entrepreneurs they knew in Arlington, Va. Karen held the first meeting in her home and 25 women showed up.... several guests Karen hadn't invited but they'd heard about the gathering and wanted to attend. From there AWE was created — a intimate social setting where busy women business owners can relax, drink wine, share their stories and inspire one another.
AWE is now expanding to chapters throughout the U.S. If you'd like to start a chapter in your community, we'd love to help! Click here for more information.
To ensure superior networking and collaborative opportunities, we limit membership to five women in each profession per chapter.
AWE does not include multi-level marketing in its membership as we focus on supporting local female founders and owners of locally run businesses.
