Partner with WBON

WBON invites you to form a strategic alliance with an organization that represents the interests of Vermont’s women business owners. WBON partnership opportunities are welcomed with organizations that share our vision to propel women entrepreneurs into greater economic, social and political spheres of power in Vermont and nationally.

Annual Partnership Opportunities

Looking for twofold visibility?

It’s not often that one organization and its conferences offer direct access to decision-makers across two types of markets in a single, convenient, Vermont location.

Business-to-business market

WBON presents a unique opportunity for B2B companies to access the fastest-growing segment of the Vermont economy—women business owners. Change The Story reports their vital role:

  • Women own 24,400 businesses in Vermont, which
  • Employ more than 40,000 people, and
  • Generate annual revenues of approximately $2.4 billion.

As a partner/sponsor, you highlight your organization and its support of the growth and success of our network of women entrepreneurs across many business stages and industries. WBON members share a Vermont connection but may serve local, regional, national or international markets. Their business needs include everything from establishing banking relationships, cloud computing to website development, marketing automation or sales support, payroll processing to employee training, and professional services such as accounting, legal and management consulting.

Business-to-consumer market

Bloomberg reports women are responsible for roughly 85% of all consumer purchase decisions, including everything from autos to financial services, real estate, food, and health care. According to the Harvard Business Review, women represent the largest market opportunity in the world. For B2C companies, WBON offers a rare opportunity to reach a group of incredibly busy women who control the purse strings both at the business and at home.

Partnership/Sponsorship Offerings

Whether your market is B2B, B2C, or a blend of both, WBON offers annual partnership and event-specific sponsorship opportunities to put you directly in front of our community of engaged, passionate women business owners. To explore the options that best fit for you, please contact us.
