2020 is here - which is perfect because our 1st program of the year was all about CLARITY -
Clarity on where to get support for our businesses right here in CNY!
Here’s the quick recap to help you get what YOU need this year!
If you’re looking for…
- Free, confidential business counseling to help start & grow your business, then seek out the Small Business Development Center! The SBDC can point you in the right direction if you have questions, need funding, or are curious about MWBE certification! A big thank you to Joan Powers for sharing your experience & expertise!
- Connections with women from all over the region to expand your network and your marketplace, then check out Women Ties!
