A Seton Hall University undergrad-level class in Promotional Writing may not seem to have much in common with WEConnect International, the corporate-led non-profit that empowers women-owned businesses to thrive in global markets. But as a recent course project revealed, they do: Both are true believers in the benefits of hands-on, practical work experience.

Based in Washington, D.C., WEConnect International collaborates with forward-thinking public- and private-sector partners to certify women-owned businesses in both developed and emerging retail markets, from Ontario and Germany to Mexico and Peru. No matter where they are in the world, entrepreneurs registered with WEConnect International can access the resources, guidance and networks needed to overcome obstacles, develop sustainable economic opportunities, and establish relationships with corporations interested in their goods and services.
