Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce (CWCC) is a member-based non-profit 501(C) 6 organization. Our mission is to provide opportunities and visibility for women in business through relationship development, education, mentorship, partnership and alliances.
CWCC was founded in 1988 by a group of nine women to give women a voice in business, support women in business and provide resources to help them succeed. Women own 10.6 million businesses in the United States and employ 19.1 million workers – that’s one in every seven employees. Women-owned businesses account for $2.5 trillion in sales. Colorado is ranked first in the country for economic success, and second in the country for most entrepreneurial.
