Michigan Women's Marketplace (MWM)
The Michigan Women's Marketplace (www.miwomen.com) MWM, an initiative of the Center for Empowerment & Economic Development (www.miceed.org) CEED, is sponsored by the Small Business Administration (SBA), General Motors, and Comerica Bank.
MWM was designed to help bring women business owners online. The original site was a virtual mall where women sold their products and services through the Marketplace. It was intended that, by having multiple products online, each vendor would receive additional business just because of the traffic – similar to a physical mall.
Over the years, MWM has evolved into a first-class women's information and education site, with multiple partners and associates providing a wealth of information to help maintain and grow our women businesses.
On the site today, you will find:
•The Women's Business Directory, which offers an opportunity for a woman-owned business to register and receive additional business from online visitors looking to do business with women and a wonderful networking opportunity for our women to also work with each other.
•The original Chat sessions have evolved into Webinars, where you will find some outstanding presenters and topics.
•The Training Center, which consists of articles on many business topics, as well as a list of business resources and links for further research.
•Our Photo Gallery will keep you up-to-date on past events.
•Our Calendar of events, including many opportunities from other non-profit organizations across the state of Michigan.
