Women's Business Centers of Ohio

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

The WBC at each location can guide individuals at any stage of the business process.  Through one-on-one counseling sessions with WBC staff and volunteers, you can get the direction and resources to meet your goals. Business advisors want to help you successfully start a business, or grow and expand your existing business -- increasing revenue and creating jobs for the local economy.

For a nominal annual membership fee, the WBC provides the following resources on location and/or at locations throughout the community.

  • Access to a resource library, computer lab, and free wireless internet
  • Business coaching, mentoring, and one-on-one counseling
  • Training and workshop programs
  • Networking opportunities
  • Access to small business loans through ECDI
  • Copy, fax and notary service
