What we're about

The Veteran Women Business Owners United (VWBOU) is designed to actively engage Veteran Women interested in starting a business, current business owners, or those simply interested in connecting with other Veteran women for personal/professional development, networking and fun! Females on Active Duty, Reservist and military spouses are also welcome.

FIRST FRIDAYS
VWBOU will meet every First Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for a fun social event. Here Veteran women new to the DFW area, transitioning and/or simply looking to connect can enjoy a relaxing evening networking with other women Veterans.

3RD WEDNESDAYS WINNING WOMEN
VWBOU wants Veteran women to connect socially, but we also want to provide opportunities for personal and professional growth, so every third Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., we will meet for Winning Women offering presentations on leadership, business development, educational opportunities, networking and more. Each session focuses on how women can develop a competitive edge to achieve their deserved outcomes and ultimately win! Come regularly and develop your personal/professional winning game plan!

5TH SATURDAYS SISTER-TO-SISTER SOCIAL
Finally, we all deserve a break, so every fifth Saturday (basically once a quarter), we will organize an exciting and interesting social outing.

Get connected to the DFW's newest meet up group uniting Veteran women business owners and Veteran women.
