Women Owned in Retail 2021 Kickoff Event

July 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Women-owned businesses are behind some of the most innovative, game-changing consumer products on the market, driving industry trends and reinventing product categories. But the path from product development to retail success can be a daunting one, particularly for women entrepreneurs who are much less likely to receive start-up capital to fund their business.

WBENC has teamed up with Target, Lowe’s and Macy’s to demystify the process with Women Owned in Retail, a program designed to help women-owned business with consumer goods scale and thrive in the retail space.


  • A lively kickoff event to connect with representatives from Target, Lowe’s and Macy’s, hear success stories from WBEs who are scaling in big retail and learn about marketing your consumer product.
  • A bootcamp webinar from Macy’s to learn how to be a successful supplier in big retail.
  • An accelerator from Lowe’s for small businesses striving to get retail-ready.
  • A special event from Target to deep dive on the vendor journey and how to do business with major retailers.
  • A holiday showcase of Women Owned in Retail.
  • … And more!

This program is open to ALL women-owned businesses with consumer products. You do not need to be certified by WBENC to attend Women Owned in Retail events.
