Until further notice, the WBC will not host any face to face workshops and the center will be closed for members.

All workshops are postponed until late Spring 2020.

Additionally, our coaching sessions will take place via appointment only. We can make accommodations for coaching via phone, Zoom conferencing or Skype. If you have a scheduled appointment, a team member will reach out to you to make necessary arrangements. To schedule a one-on-one coaching session please contact your local WBC.


The Women’s Business Centers of Ohio are located in ClevelandColumbus, and Cincinnati.  They are initiatives of the Economic & Community Development Institute and are the only SBA-funded Women’s Business Centers in the state.
