Over the past decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, with Florida leading the way. At Working Women of Tampa Bay, we believe this movement is not only something to be celebrated but something to be cultivated moving forward.

That’s why we created the Working Women Foundation: to build a supportive community of mentors and offer start-up grants to women entrepreneurs. By working together, we can continue our efforts to educate, motivate and inspire women in Florida to achieve their business goals.

Meaningful Mentoring Program
Through our 501c3 Foundation, we are proud to present the Meaningful Mentoring Program. This program aims to inspire women to reach out to other women through a strong and supportive community. Through the simple act of offering guidance and insight, mentors will help other women achieve personal and professional aspirations. The goal of this program is to eliminate competitiveness and encourage positive relationships between women.

The Meaningful Mentoring Program encourages connection, conversation and community. You’ll meet for an intimate one-on-one lunch underwritten by our generous sponsors, Carmelita’s Rum and Clear Labs. As a participant, you’ll receive a gift certificate for your lunch, so all you have to do is apply and be open to making a new connection!

We have three great lunch options for you to choose from: the Centre Club, Empress Tea Room, or Ricky P’s. If you are selected, you will be invited to two “Mentoring Mingles” so you can catch up with your mentor or mentee and be introduced to new contacts.

This opportunity is limited to 60 mentors and 60 mentees. You must be a Working Women of Tampa Bay member to participate.

About Our Mentoring Sponsors
Carmelita is strong, yet feminine; sophisticated, yet approachable; adventurous, yet grounded. She is the quintessential modern woman and she has a passion for discovery and pleasure. An exquisite blend of premium dark rum, orange and spice flavors, these delightful taste sensations Carmelita has created can be enjoyed both straight up and in a cocktail. Visit her website at CarmelitasRum.com.

Clear Labs provides a co-workspace for creative professionals and entrepreneurs alike to innovate and create together while producing dynamic solutions for clients thanks to their open source method of business. As a fully transparent marketing, advertising, promotions and production consultancy, one stop gets it all with true niche service expertise. Whether you are looking to hire the whole lab or a freelancer from the lab, it’s all about getting results in a way that works best for you and your business. Visit the company’s website at ClearLabs.org.

"Seed Money" Grants
Are you a new entrepreneur who needs a little help getting your business off the ground? Or a more experienced entrepreneur who wants to start a new project for your company? The Working Women Foundation may be able to help!

We are currently accepting applications for "seed money" grants for women entrepreneurs needing a little assistance growing their business. Grants between $500-$1000 will be available to women entrepreneurs who can demonstrate proof of concept and a plan for how the funds will be used.
