M&T Bank Minority and Women Emerging Entrepreneurs Program – (MWEE)

September 6, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Creating opportunities for individuals leading minority- and women-owned enterprises into advanced stages of development.

The M&T Bank Minority and Women Emerging Entrepreneurs (MWEE) program is presented by the UB School of Management’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership. The MWEE program is partially funded with a generous grant from M&T Bank.

The MWEE program will help you move your company to the next stage of development. You will work with a mentor, attend biweekly business development seminars and networking events, and complete a revised or newly developed business plan.

You should apply to the MWEE program if you:

  • Are the owner of an emerging business with annual revenue below $300,000
  • Wish to formulate clear objectives and outcomes to guide the development of your business plan
  • Strive to learn about and connect with organizations and resources – public and private – that can assist with the development of your business.

To apply, you must be either a woman or a member of a recognized minority and own a business in the Buffalo-Niagara region.
