Corporate Partner Program Description

Through its Corporate Partner Program, NAWBO-OC offers local businesses unparalleled access to the most successful women business entrepreneurs in Orange County. Our vibrant NAWBO-OC chapter prides itself on providing innovative opportunities to its over 250 active members to connect with one another and the community.

As a Corporate Partner, your firm will be invited to join our monthly events at the Irvine Marriott, where your special NAWBO relationship will be promoted to a banquet room filled with more than 100 members and their guests. You will also receive special recognition at our signature Remarkable Women event, attended by over 600, which showcases three outstanding, inspirational women who have successfully beaten the entrepreneurial odds.

Our Corporate Partners are critical to our ability to continue to provide our members with educational workshops, networking and business promotion opportunities, as well as one-on-one mentoring. Without our valued Corporate Partners, NAWBO-OC would not be the most highly esteemed organization in Orange County for local businesswomen.
