About Appalachian Women Entrepreneurs
Appalachian Women Entrepreneurs is a program that connects Western North Carolina women with one another, with resources (including training and technical assistance) and with markets – for the purpose of creating new and expanded craft based businesses. AWE participants agree to provide background and track their progress as part of the program, which helps determine what program elements are most effective at helping develop successful rural entrepreneurial enterprises. Across the mountains, AWE is helping women build businesses that provide them with income and opportunity while delivering valuable goods and services to the local community.
