Partner in progress
Because we are entrepreneurs ourselves, FEMWORKS realizes the true importance of local businesses' impact on economic development and the challenges that entrepreneurs face in the pursuit of business growth and community impact.

Training and education
We take great pride in our partnership with Rutgers University Business School and Rutgers University Professional Development and Continuing Education, economic development agencies and non-profits across the country. Through these partners and many others, FEMWORKS delivers business training and education for first-generation entrepreneurs who are often Women, African American, Latino and from urban areas that are experiencing revitalization. We realize that competition in the small business market is fierce, that is why we bring ideas, programs and business concepts that help entrepreneurs grow their business faster, better and stronger.
Between 2007 and 2016, the number of Latina-owned firms increased by 137%
