• Total support. After 27 years in business, I now have the tools with their guidance on how to get my business out there to help so many people!
  • My counselor was so helpful with my cash-flow spreadsheet and business plan. She is following up with me and had lots of practical tips for small business help.
  • The training classes were tremendously helpful for me in getting started. I always check the list for new classes and events because WWBC has many things going on that are useful for newer business owners.
  • At the WBC, you will find a wide array of resources to get your business launched and growing, under one roof and in a very supportive environment. I think I would have been lost trying to get started without them.
  • Good classes for business development at a variety of levels - great resources for entrepreneurs just starting out or those already well on their way.
  • I had tried to start a business plan but until meeting with a counselor at WBC wasn't exactly sure how to accomplish it and that is after attending a business plan class from the other place I went to for help. Highly recommend WBC.
  • This is a great place for support as you embark on any new business venture.
  • This is a great place to utilize in the beginning while you are creating your business plan and also the one on one business counseling is extremely helpful throughout. I've recommended the How to Launch and Grow your Business class to many people.
  • Whether you're in business for yourself, are considering business ownership, need funding to help you with the start -- or the growth -- of your business, the Washington Women's Business Center and Community Capital Development are tremendous resources for you.
  • No matter where you are in your business, new or established, the WBC has resources to improve your game.
