Women Entrepreneurs NYC

WE NYC (Women Entrepreneurs NYC) is an initiative based out of the New York City Department of Small Business Services that is dedicated to helping women start and grow their businesses.

Women entrepreneurs are key economic actors in New York City — building businesses that support families, uplift communities and generate jobs.

While there are almost 200,000 women entrepreneurs in NYC and women contribute approximately $50 Billion dollars annually in revenue, according to our research, men own 1.5 times the number of businesses, have 3.5 times the number of employees, and generate 4.5 times the amount of revenue.

WE NYC has researched the reasons for this gender gap and developed tailored programs and tools with women entrepreneurs through user testing and intensive feedback efforts to create an initiative that connects women entrepreneurs with the resources, education, and community they need to thrive.


WE NYC offers a range of tailored business services including networking events, business courses, and mentorship sessions, all focused on empowering women in NYC to launch and grow their businesses and connect with the right resources.

WE NYC's services are free and are available across the five boroughs and in multiple languages.

This past summer, New York City was rated the best City in the world for women entrepreneurs. Get involved and join the movement!
