The sky is the limit.

Women are starting businesses at a rate that is 1.5 times higher than men for the past 20 years. And, women will create more than half of the 9.72 million new small business jobs in the U.S. that are expected to be created by 2018. That’s a powerful impact!

In partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Women’s Business Center Program, WWBIC is proud to host Women’s Business Centers in each of our three regional offices. Women’s Business Center programming is available and helpful for everyone, and is designed to be particularly responsive to needs of women and socioeconomically challenged entrepreneurs. We understand barriers faced by entrepreneurs in all stages of business development, and are here to help.

Whether your goal is to create or revise your business plan, master QuickBooks, or find new customers – WWBIC is here to assist you!  Our training sessions are offered statewide, in a variety of locations, and are free or low cost (scholarships are available). Programming takes place on weekdays, evenings, and weekends to accommodate busy schedules.
