Sponsorship

Give women entrepreneurs the resources they need for success

Spend your sponsorship dollars on something that truly makes a difference.

Did you know you can give a woman who is socio-economically disadvantaged all the resources she needs to launch a successful small business? 

For a low cost, you can change the lives of women entrepreneurs and their families by sponsoring a package of Women's Business Center memberships. The impact of your sponsorship is far reaching:

For your community, enabling a small business start-up benefits the local economy, often in neighborhoods that truly need a boost.

For the entrepreneur, you help her achieve the economic self-sufficiency she needs to create a better life for herself and her family – and also for her employees and patrons.


An annual WBC membership costs only $80 and provides entrepreneurs with these essentials, and a whole lot more:

  • Business coaching, mentoring and training

  • Co-working space with meeting rooms and wireless internet access

  • Use of a laptop and/or the WBC computer lab

  • Networking opportunities

  • Access to crucial small business loan capital through ECDI

  • Confidence and a supportive entrepreneurial community

Although the fee is low, some budding entrepreneurs still struggle to afford this membership. For a woman who is financially struggling, squeezing $80 out of her budget can feel impossible.

Make a difference for women in Ohio by sponsoring memberships for deserving entrepreneurs.
