Women-Eye (EYE) Empower Yourself Everyday
We Are a Global Sisterhood At Women-Eye
This Is Who We Are And What We Have Done!
Women-Eye is an non-profit 501c3 organization based in Chicago and is a leader in the field of micro enterprise in the U.S. that provides credit and business support to women entrepreneurs. Women-Eye was established to help women achieve long-term financial sustainability through revenue generated through our businesses development and training program.
Our mission is to help women to empower themselves by providing information and resources that will help them achieve success as an entrepreneur. Women-Eye’s goal is to help women become physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially accomplished.
Women-Eye has grown tremendously over the past seven years. Women-Eye has helped over 2,500 women. This year alone, Women-Eye has given over 400 grants to women which could not have happened without your help. The grants cover fees for membership, workshops and Expos.
Women-Eyes goal for 2014 is to do much more. When women come to us with a dream of building a secure future, we help them step-by-step to turn their ideas into a successful business. Here is how we do it: by participating in The Thompson Center Expos, and other events that Women-Eye schedules during the year; which gives women a new marketing space/opportunity and selling experiences to the women vendors. By helping these women GROW their business we are helping to change their lives, and enriching communities.
Women-Eyes goal is to provide services and programs that support and accelerate women business ownership and strengthen their impact on the economy.
Women-Eye has the earned reputation of increasing the economic impact of women-owned businesses on both families and local communities.
Women-Eye can make your dream a reality. Do you have a great idea for a product or service, but don’t know where to start? Are you looking to grow your current business? Women-Eye offers workshops in financial accounting and management, planning, marketing and other business skills that can give you the tools necessary to start or expand your own business. What's more, at Women-Eye you will develop the self-confidence to start and grow your own business.
