Are you a woman-owned business in Chicago’s west suburbs?


Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been in business for decades, we think you’ll love being part of West Suburban Women Entrepreneurs.

We are welcoming, curious, positive, energetic women working in many different fields. Our members are designers, legal eagles, real estate mavens, caterers, custom cake artists, accountants, wellness coaches, and so much more!

In fact, if a woman can dream it, WSWE women are probably doing it. And with this many perspectives in the room, our monthly conversations are always enlightening and fun!

Our goal is to give every member full access to the wisdom of the entire group. The magic happens in our regular breakfast meetings and at special evening gatherings where we relax and celebrate our accomplishments, share wisdom, and encourage one another.

If you believe in growing your business organically through genuine, active friendships, then West Suburban Women Entrepreneurs is the place for you.


We welcome our newest members: Allison Cychosz of AMC Legal, P.C. and Sally Smith of JTM Designs!
