Register For An Ignite Session If You Want To Grow An Existing For Profit Business

Do you own a for-profit business that you want to grow and enhance?

If you answered yes, the Women’s Business Center invites you register for an Ignite session which is our free, one hour business counseling session.



Schedule a session. Once you’ve created a profile you’ll be able to schedule an ignite session at a date and time that works for you.


Meet with a business counselor where you will receive an actionable plan to help you launch or grow your business and find a program that works for you.

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 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.
