(San Luis Obispo, CA) The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) was founded in 1975 to open doors for women entrepreneurs by transforming public policy and influencing opinion makers. In the beginning, there were twelve women business owners who met informally in the D.C. area to share information about federal contracts, access to capital and other issues related to their businesses. Since then it has become a unified voice of over 10.1 million women-owned businesses in the United States representing the fastest growing segment of the economy.
