WBC’s [Elevate Advisory Group] gave me the insight and education about various opportunities that were available and how to access them. They were a great support team on teaching me what I needed to know to move my business to the next level.

[Master Advisory Group] has been a great asset in running and growing our business. It has provided me the resources, knowledge and contacts to focus on big picture business planning rather than just reacting to the “crisis of the day.”
Dr. Glenna Bett, Cytocybernetics
The monthly [Launch Advisory Group] meetings are inspirational, educational, and fun. The accountability session ensures that monthly goals are met. The help from the Women’s Business Center has been of outstanding value in helping me and my company appreciate and maximize the support and opportunities that are available to entrepreneurs in general and women entrepreneurs in particular.
Sondra Payne, AXA Advisors, LLC
The Women’s Business Center and my peers in the Forum group really bring a great perspective on continuing to grow my practice. We keep each other accountable and it’s nice to have ideas and feedback from individuals outside of the financial world.
Kathy Benzinger, Benzinger’s Clothing Care
The Women’s Business Center at Canisius has provided me with the necessary tools and knowledge to better manage and grow our business. I now have a better understanding of Financial Reports, Strategic Planning, HR, and Succession Planning. However, I believe that the greatest benefit of the WBC is the support and encouragement that I receive not only from the staff but from my classmates and friends in Forum One (Master Advisory Group).

The Women’s Business Center is a wonderful tool for Women in Business. Whether a new business or an existing business, they encourage new ideas and are a terrific support group!
