The Women Empowered by Business (WEBB) national organization of franchise business owners have supported many causes in the past through annual fund-raising and sponsorships. But now, they have decided to partner with a cause for the long-term. WEBB has for the past two years been supporting NFTE, or Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, participating in several annual projects designed to bring the information, empowerment and the spirit of entrepreneurship to young people. Now, working with Franchise Source Brands International, parent company to WEBB, they are making a commitment to use their network of business coaches to help spread the word.
“We want young people to get excited about entrepreneurship as a career option,” says Lori Tyll, operations officer at FSBI and co-founder of WEBB. “And who better than business owners themselves. We educate our franchisees and hold events all around the country to share in the excitement about the career options of being a business owner.”
