Who We Are

Launched in 2018, women.nyc is an ambitious program dedicated to ensuring New York City remains the greatest place in the world for women to launch startups, run businesses, and advance their careers.

By leveraging all the tools the city has to offer and working with partners who share our mission to financially empower women, women.nyc is creating programs that have real impact.

From free tech classes and salary negotiation workshops to small business loans and venture funding, women.nyc is here to help all NYC women reach higher.
