New Women's Business Center Opens in Delaware
A new Women's Business Center has just opened in the state of Delaware. The center is located in the Community Services Building in Wilmington, Delaware. Local entrepreneurs and supporters of small businesses attended the grand opening. The center is very important to them.
What does the center offer?
Women's Business Centers (WBCs) are beginning to pop up everywhere. These centers offer services that include training and counseling in a wide variety of areas that help women learn the skills they need to become successful entrepreneurs. The new Delaware Women's Business Center will offer business plan development services, and business training and counseling in other areas that will help women entrepreneurs run successful businesses.
Are there others?
There are about 100 Women's Business Centers located throughout the U.S. Women entrepreneurs can locate a center nearest them to see what programs they offer in their area.
The Delaware center is located in the same building that serves as headquarters for the First State Community Loan Fund, which has provided important services to women in business since 1992, including business consulting and financing for women-owned businesses.
