Redefining the landscape of access to opportunity by unlocking the $28T global economy

Access opportunities and resources to develop, scale and secure customers, contracts and capital.

We connect the right leader to the right opportunity at the right time.

In November 2022, the United Nations said that at the current rate of progress, it would take us 300 years to reach gender parity. We are here to solve this.

EBW will Be the One creating solutions that reduce the gap. Our EBW.ONE platform will facilitate the allocation of $1 billion+ in contracts and capital to deserving but untapped founders and businesses. We’re not waiting 300 years for gender parity.

In her global work as an invited Ambassador speaker on behalf of The US State Department, an Emeritus member of the United Nations Foundation’s Global Entrepreneur Council, Ingrid has seen firsthand how gender inequality can damage a nation’s people, stability and economy because they have:
  • 2.13x the chance of being a fragile state
  • 1.5x the chance of being unstable and violent
  • 1.28x the chance of experiencing terrorism
  • 1.4x the chance of the country being poor and in economic decline
  • 1.5x the chance of having a low GDP per capita
  • 1.8x the chance of scoring worse on the Global Hunger Index

When women and minority business owners have access to contracts and capital, their country decreases hunger, increases the overall health of the population, and counters national and global security concerns with lower levels of international violence.
