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.

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