Launch of the WNY Women-Owned Business Directory – Buffalo Rising


Have you ever wondered what the local landscape looks like, when it comes to the number of women-owned WNY businesses in our community? In recent years, more and more women-owned businesses have been established, helping to create a more diverse economy in the region.

When the pandemic struck, the WNY Foundation for Women sought to find a way to ensure that these women entrepreneurs would not be too at risk, that’s why the organization created a directory resource called WNY Women-Owned Business Directory. The Foundation estimated that this new directory would benefit women who “continue to be disproportionately affected by the pandemic”.

To date, more than 230 local women-owned businesses are listed in the participatory business directory, which will be officially launched later this week. At this point, the website is live for anyone who wants to preview (or add their business) ahead of the official launch.

All of the companies currently listed are offering services during the pandemic.
