Welcome to the new!

We're so pleased to unveil our new website, complete with blog! Here you'll find news about our programs and services, links to useful information and resources, and information that you can use to start or grow your business. 

Don't miss a thing!
We'll use this blog to keep you posted on news and events related to women in business. You can subscribe to the blog and receive email updates on the days we post new content; just enter your email address in the "Subscribe" box to the right. You can also add us to your feed reader and stay up-to-date with us that way.

We've updated the look and feel of the whole site, as well as some of the content. One noticeable change is the addition of three "pathways," designed to help you find the most pertinent resources for the stage of business you're in. We call them our "Three E's," and you'll see them featured on the homepage. As we grow content on the new, the resources under each of these sections will grow too. Check back often!

Do you have a business idea or are just starting out? This section is for you if you're in the Entry stage of business. Here you'll find a handy assessment tool from the U.S. Small Business Administration to help you determine your readiness (and next steps) for small business ownership. You can also register for a free, one-on-one counseling session with an E-Magnify business counselor.

So you've had your business for awhile now, and you're looking to grow it. When you're no longer a start-up but still on your way to reaching your goals, we call that an Emerging business. In this section you'll find resources such as free business counseling, connection to peers and a personalized advisory board, and business training to help you take your enterprise to the next level.

As your business has grown, so have the challenges and opportunities you're facing. The resources in the Established business section can help you get a handle on issues such as human resources, government contracting, and importing/exporting. For peer-to-peer and advisory board support, check out the Women Presidents’ Organization and ATHENAPowerLink®.

Our center has been providing resources and assistance to women business owners for more than 20 years, and we're excited about this next chapter online. Please take a look around and let us know what you think.
