Membership has its privileges. Members of the National Association of Women Business Owners® (NAWBO) are a part of the largest dues paying organization for women entrepreneurs and the voice of the nation’s over 10 million women-owned businesses. A NAWBO membership offers women-owned businesses in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and greater Minnesota a national and local platform to tap into the power of an already established community of women entrepreneurs.
