Reston Limousine CEO Starts Sterling Women Networking Group

Posted on September 24, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

STERLING, Va. – Many women-owned businesses continue to emerge as leaders throughout the county. Some of these women can be spotted at the Sterling Women networking group, started in August by Reston Limousine CEO Kristina Bouweiri.

From coaching to investment banking to healthcare, the Sterling Women group has also has attracted a group of women who normally don't network-drawing from a few of Loudoun's largest corporations – AOL, Orbital Sciences, BB&T, and more. A lot of groups designed for just women currently include the Women In Business Alliance, the Loudoun Women Business Forum, as well as the Great Falls Women's Business Luncheon.

"I started Sterling Women so there would be a lunch I could attend very close to my office. It was very self-serving in that regard. I am not aware of any other lunch for women in Sterling. I know of lunches for women in Tyson's and Leesburg," Bouweiri said. "What makes my group different is that it is a quick one-hour lunch. I'm trying to attract people who don't network, busy business women who would go to something if it was just one hour. I'm trying to get some high-level women who normally don't network to attend on a regular basis."

Statistically, women fare better countywide than countrywide. According to the most recent U.S. Census, 30% of Loudoun County businesses were women-owned in 2002. In 2002, 5,600 of 18,500 Loudoun firms were owned by women, while nationwide 6.5 million of 13.2 million firms were owned by women.
