The Women's Business Center (WBC) at WomenVenture is one of two WBCs in Minnesota. WBCs are part of a network of nearly 100 educational centers designated by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs who face unique obstacles in the world of business. WBCs ensure that critical resources are available to all women entrepreneurs, and specifically those who are economically or socially disadvantaged.
