Visionary Corporate Partners

WEOC works with corporate partners who share our values and vision of strengthening women’s entrepreneurship across Canada.

Working with member organizations across the country, WEOC represents a network of organizations committed to creating a more inclusive entrepreneurial system. We do this through delivering the WEOC National Loan Program, developing a library of tools and resources, and hosting talks and networking opportunities with our members.

Women entrepreneurs face many obstacles to starting and growing their businesses, from accessing capital to gender biases. Only 17 percent of Canadian small and medium-sized businesses are majority owned by women. But these businesses also represent a contribution of $150 billion to the Canadian economy and employ over 1.5 million people.

As a corporate visionary partner, your company will be connected to thousands of these engaged women entrepreneurs and advisors, while boosting your profile as a socially responsible leader in the women’s entrepreneurship space.
