MWEE at The Exchange at Beverly Gray

January 2, 2024 @ 5:30 pm - June 24, 2025 @ 8:30 pm EST

Thanks to the extension of a substantial grant by Open4, the CEL is set to expand the M&T Bank Minority and Women Emerging Entrepreneurs program by sponsoring an additional cohort in collaboration with the Exchange at Beverly Gray to specifically focus on supporting businesses in East Buffalo.

The goal of the MWEE program is to create opportunities for individuals leading minority-and women-owned emerging enterprises into advanced stages of development. Throughout this 6-month program, participants benefit from mentorship, coaching, seminars, and networking events to enhance their business model and apply innovative leadership practices.
Applications for the January cohort close September 30.

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.
