High School Mentorship Program

Entrepreneurial Connections is a teen-mentorship program created by NAWBO San Antonio in 1999 to encourage young women to explore entrepreneurship as a means to financial independence and career satisfaction. Through the NAWBO San Antonio Foundation, thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded to area teen women who participate in Entrepreneurial Connections.

As a collaborative effort between NAWBO-SA members, school representatives and administrators, community leaders, university and corporate sponsors, EC reaches hundreds of teen women in under-served high schools in San Antonio and exposes them to successful women business owners who model that the entrepreneurial dream is possible!

The six-month Entrepreneurial Connections program includes:

  • Opportunities for teens to network with other teens and with women business owners
  • Interactive presentations on business etiquette and entrepreneurship
  • Mentoring sessions at each high school in the program
  • Business Plan training session
  • Business Plan Competition for college scholarships
  • Two experiential, one-day conferences that focuses on developing strategies, business plans, and resources for young women to start their own businesses

Participants in the program have an opportunity to win a scholarship toward college tuition, with a total of $28,000 in scholarships awarded to 7 winners.

NAWBO-SA would like to thank our 2018-2019 PROGRAM SPONSOR for their generosity and commitment!
