C200’s membership includes the world’s leading women corporate executives and entrepreneurs, who understand first-hand the adversities that come with being a woman in business, especially in entrepreneurship.

Through research and the shared real-life experiences of our entrepreneurial members, we at C200 know that women entrepreneurs greatly benefit from access to a peer network and mentors, educational opportunities to enhance their business acumen, and access to funding. We created C200’s CHAMPION Program to offer women entrepreneurs just that.
