6th Annual BCNA Immigrant Heritage Week Awards

May 10, 2017

By Yanki Tshering

Looking back on our 6th Annual BCNA Immigrant Heritage Week Awards, I am gratified by what a renewing, inspiring program it was, and what a wonderful sense of community and of unified purpose there was in the room. Never have we felt a deeper conviction and appreciation of the role BCNA plays in supporting the efforts of individuals and families who come to New York seeking safety, security, and a better life - and in turn contribute to the rich cultural diversity and financial success of this country.

This month we're very pleased to profile the Women's Enterprise Action Loan Fund (WEALF),  a terrific resource for women business owners in New York City.  For the past two years, we've been working with WEALF founder and Board member Vicki Weiner, serving as WEALF'S fiscal agent.

WEALF, which fills a niche for women who cannot obtain financing for their businesses from traditional sources, also provides the women entrepreneurs it helps financially with one-on-one to mentors to help them take their businesses to the next level.

Introducing BCNA Voices

March 23, 2017

by Yanki Tshering

We are very excited to introduce a brand new initiative: BCNA Voices, an exciting roster of engaging speakers: women entrepreneurs who can share their stories to inspire members of their own communities or to help influence policies that promote entrepreneurship.


We are particularly pleased to be announcing this new initiative during Womens' History Month, in acknowledgment of the huge, and often unsung contributions that women – and particularly immigrant women - have made to the vibrant fabric of New York's economy.
