The Women’s Business Center

Since the Great Recession of 2008, small, women-owned businesses along with large corporations have been responsible for the creation of employment. However, women in Iowa lag the nation in our creation and growth of small business which, after home-ownership, is the second-most important wealth-creating tool. The WBC offers a series of workshops for low-income and low-capital women on creating a business along with individual counseling. Funding will support this on-going WBC project.
