Join us March 11-13, 2019 as women entrepreneurs, corporate representatives, diversity and inclusion experts, and other supporters gather in Houston, Texas for three days of networking and learning, all centered around finding and nurturing business opportunities for women-owned businesses! This year, we proudly award the 2019 Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Stars and honor the 2018 America’s Top Corporations for Women Business Enterprises. These awards recognize successful WBEs and those corporations who successfully demonstrate a commitment to doing business with WBENC-Certified WBEs.

WBENC, along with this year’s presenting sponsors, Accenture, Bristol-Myers Squibb, EY, Ampcus Inc. and ASAP Solutions Group, LLC, is excited to announce the theme for the 2019 event: LIFTOFF, a nod to our host city, Houston’s, legacy and leadership in the areas of space, science, energy and technology. But LIFTOFF is more than a fitting slogan – it is truly our collective mission and passion to help women-owned businesses break through barriers and lift off, to launch, rise and succeed, and to fuel economic growth across the country and beyond.
