WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2019 - 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Please join the Women’s Business Center (WBC) at Canisius College as we take this timely action of celebrating women business owners who have created success and support the women-owned businesses that are looking to grow. Let’s use the energy the community has today and create great things for tomorrow!
There is a need for us to come together. According to the Harvard Business Review, “Although women start businesses at twice the rate of men, only 2% of women-owned businesses break the $1 million threshold in terms of revenues.”
Through the WBC’s 150+ programs and individual business counseling sessions held last year we saw over 780 participants. Through these efforts the WBC’s economic impact resulted in helping 13 new businesses launch; 21 new jobs created within businesses served and over $1.4 Million in increased profits of our assisted businesses.
Our Ignite Awards Luncheon will be a telling visual of support with business resources, corporate services that serve businesses and business owners. The energy will be palpable, and great connections will be made by all, as this very unique event will match up attendees at the tables with potential clients, partners and/or mentors.
Let’s take this opportunity to join forces to create greater success for us all!
