ABOUT US

Women Business Center of Mississippi

As the only U.S. Small Business Administration-funded Women’s Business Center in the state, we are a part of a national network of national centers designed to assist women in starting and growing their small businesses.  Through our services and programs, we help empower women to grow strong, sustainable businesses.

Women make up more than half of Mississippi’s population and earn less than men despite having equal education, so the Women Business Center of Mississippi is a major opportunity for women across Mississippi to access business tools necessary to achieve self-reliance. However, all are welcomed and encouraged to take advantage of the services that the center has to offer.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Women Business Center of Mississippi (WBCM) is to serve as the catalyst for providing in-depth, substantive, outcome oriented business services to entrepreneurs, both nascent and established businesses, a represented number of which are socially and economically disadvantaged.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

The Women Business Center of Mississippi provides services without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, age, and disability. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. To make a request or obtain more information, please contact us at 601-376-9895 or info@wbcmississippi.org .

The AWBC works to secure Economic Justice and Entrepreneurial Opportunities for women by supporting and sustaining a national network of more than 100 Women’s Business Centers (WBC). WBCs help women succeed in business by providing Training, Mentoring, Business Development and Financing opportunities to over 145,000 Women Entrepreneurs each year.
