WHO we are.

As the only women’s business center in the state, the center offers services to support small business development to achieve next level success in local communities across West Virginia. The SBA partnership stems from the passage of the Women's Business Ownership Act of 1988, establishing the Women’s Business Center Program and the National Women’s Business Council as an independent advisor tithe White House, Congress and SBA.

The WVU Women’s Business Center offers the support, coaching, mentorship and training to help women entrepreneurs establish and grow their businesses. Through tailored coaching sessions, technical and marketing assistance, government resources, strategic partnerships, investment opportunities and certification services, the WBC assists all stages of business development.
WHY we are here.
The WVU Women's Business Center's mission is to empower women entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, build on their success, drive innovation in their communities, and leverage opportunities to strengthen West Virginia’s economy to support statewide growth and prosperity.
