Women’s Business Center at Canisius College Sharpens Focus on Growing Successful Businesses

April 22 Seminar: Grow Your Business with Venture Capital Showcases the Center’s New Tagline and Campaign

(Buffalo, NY) The 2015 Economic Impact Survey numbers tell the story – 28 new businesses and 176 jobs were created by the Women’s Business Center at Canisius College (Women’s Business Center) clients in 2014.

The survey indicates that the Women’s Business Center and its members are shaping Buffalo’s economy in sectors such as tech startups, construction, manufacturing, medical, legal and professional services.

“This is an exciting time in our region and for the Women’s Business Center. Women are building a culture of entrepreneurship by participating in programming and collaborating with the community and one another. We embrace this energy and seek to be a true partner providing resources to assist each business with their growth plan”, stated Sara Vescio, Executive Director of the Women’s Business Center at Canisius.

The Women’s Business Center is introducing a new branding campaign under the umbrella Women Business Owners Shaping the New Buffalo. The Campaign includes a new website, social media pages, radio and television commercials, and signage. In addition, the Women’s Business Center is introducing new training programs such as the Venture Capital Training, the Contracting Series for M/WBE’s and Ignite Sessions, a one on one service encouraging women to sit down with a WBC team member to share their ideas and start the business planning process. The Ignite sessions are designed to continue the Center’s focus on encouraging new startups and business expansion.
