How is WBEA and WBC connected? The WBC is housed as part of the WBEA program service delivery for women-owned businesses. Recognizing that many women-owned businesses were in the start-up phase, WBEA wrote a grant to secure funding to serve entrepreneurs and small business start-ups with training, mentoring and consulting.  The WBC provides a gateway to certification for small businesses. This affords small businesses an opportunity to gain full knowledge on the benefits of certifications, contracting, engagement in WBEA and how to develop relationships with supplier diversity representatives.

 

The WBC provides one-on-one support and guidance through the certification process and assists with active involvement as new WBEA members. This service provides a direct link to helping women owned businesses get certified and sustain their businesses long term.

 

Is the WBC part of the SBA?  The SBA provides funding for the WBC services through a cooperative agreement.
