These newly added centers will be essential to the success and spread of women-owned businesses throughout the country. Setting their footprint in rural and urban communities, businesses owned by women will have access to training, networking, technical assistance, and more.
SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza said, “Opening the doors to the new Women’s Business Centers is crucial to the vitality of women-owned small business owners.” The SBA’s WBCs are a national network of 136 centers (and counting) that offer one-on-one counseling, training, networking, workshops, technical assistance, and mentoring to women entrepreneurs on numerous business development topics.
As an additive, the initiative will also be teaming up with Historically Black Colleges. This effort will not only assist women in the business industry, but it will also create racial awareness.
Government Services Exchange (GSE) has noticed the importance of bringing equality to women in the business world. One of our foremost services in government contracting is assisting women entrepreneurs in obtaining a Women-Owned Small Business Certification (WOSB) to sell their products/services to the U.S. Government.
Our goal at GSE is to expedite the WOSB Certification process and help women identify if they are certified with the SBA. To see if you are WOSB certified visit our contact page.
