NAWBO® Announces Bank Of America As Presenting Sponsor Of Women's Business Conference 2013 In Miami

WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Women Business Owners® (NAWBO) proudly welcomes Bank of America as presenting sponsor of its Women's Business Conference 2013. This year's event will be held October 3-5 in Miami, Florida, and is expected to attract hundreds of women business owners and their community of supporters from all industries and sectors. Keynote speakers will include Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, co-founders of Gilt Groupe, and Gina Rudan, author and president of Genuine Insights. The Women's Business Conference will also feature breakout session experts on topics tailored for businesses at all stages of growth, from emerging to intermediary and international.

"Bank of America has shown a tremendous commitment to all businesses, large and small, and particularly to women business owners," says Billie Dragoo, NAWBO National Chair and President/CEO of Indianapolis-based RepuCare. "They understand the critical role women entrepreneurs play in driving the economy forward and the unique challenges we face when it comes to access to capital and procurement opportunities. They are acting on their capacity to help women entrepreneurs create and retain jobs, offer new products and services and generate ideas and opportunities for customers and investors."

Bank of America works closely with regional diversity councils that are members of the National Minority Supplier Development Council and the Women's Business Enterprise National Council to provide the funding and technical support these businesses need to survive and thrive. Their efforts also help ensure success in today's challenging economy by serving as a primary source of contracts for these businesses.

"Bank of America is very pleased to be presenting sponsor of NAWBO's Women Business Conference 2013," said Robb Hilson, Bank of America Small Business executive. "Working with a great organization like NAWBO will allow us to help women-owned small businesses succeed and thrive, and is another way the bank continues to show its commitment to small businesses throughout the nation."

Bank of America has a nationwide network of banking centers and professionals that are committed to its more than 3 million small business clients and their local communities. The resources of Bank of America help small business owners succeed by offering convenient interactions and comprehensive banking, credit, cash management and investing solutions. The personal connection of small business bankers, client managers and practice solutions specialists contributes to the success of small businesses and their communities by making expertise more accessible. In the first half of 2013, Bank of America extended more than $5 billion in new credit to small businesses—an increase of 26 percent over the first half of 2012.

The theme of the NAWBO Women's Business Conference 2013 is "The World Awaits." It speaks to the fact that women business owners continue to grow at a record rate, and more women are in leadership positions than ever before, from companies to the U.S. Congress. The world truly awaits the next big move of strong, innovative women entrepreneurs.
