Welcome to IWEC
International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Foundation
IWEC is a 501c(3) registered nonprofit organization based in New York City. As a global initiative, it provides networking, educational and mentoring opportunities for successful female business owners helping them gain and expand access to international markets. It was founded by the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of Manhattan (New York) and FICCI/FLO (the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry Ladies Organization) supported by the U.S. Department of State and with The Cape Chamber of Commerce in South Africa as a vital partner.
IWEC’s goal is to develop a global business network for successful women business owners, helping them gain and expand access to international markets.
The underlying mission of IWEC remains immutable: to empower successful businesswomen and enable them to expand their business reach into new marketers and geographies, granting them unique networking and mentoring opportunities along the way.
