Who We Are

Leading Women Entrepreneurs (LWE) is a networking organization that recognizes outstanding women in business and strives for their overall advancement.
LWE connects and promotes high-level women entrepreneurs and executives through our respected media partnerships. We provide strategic networking, educational events, and retreats.  The mission is to create a sustainable ongoing environment that brings leaders together and showcases their attributes and contributions.

The Leading Women Entrepreneurs initiative was developed for the purpose of acknowledging female business owners and corporate leaders who exhibit outstanding performance in areas of innovation, community involvement and advocacy for women.

The rationale for this program is based on the following premises:

  • Recognize and showcase entrepreneurial excellence, service and leadership
  • Celebrate diverse, business, role models
  • Encourage more women to strive towards their business dreams
  • Educate through example
  • Raise awareness for the women leaders who are positively impacting the economy
  • Create media opportunities for the femtale founders of high-potential companies

The women chosen are leaders among the women in business in our state. Intelligent, creative, ambitious and socially conscious, these women are part of the wave of entrepreneurs rising in New Jersey and across the country.

I just wanted to reach out to Thank you for all of your advice from the Money Power and Media event last May. I have been really proactive with all of your steps and I am starting to see a big difference. Getting involved with the LWE has really helped to get me out from behind the scenes, improve my self-confidence and get myself and company out in the media. I am now on the Board of Directors for the PWC NJ, was recently asked to be on my first panel (see below) and today Vericon was listed in the NJBIZ Top 250 Privately Held Companies in NJ. We are #142 !!! And of course the biggest accomplishment of the year, being a Top 150 2016 finalist for LWE. 2016 has been a huge year for me !
