The WBC has been so amazing! From my initial Ignite Session, I knew it was the place for me. Meeting other women entrepreneurs and being able to share our experiences and gain feedback has helped me to develop new ideas and see my business from other perspectives.

I have learned a great deal of information from the WBC, and met a lot of great women with businesses as well.  Not many in my field, but it’s interesting to see what other women are starting up. Without the WBC, I would not have started my application for my M/WBE certification, I would not have learned all that I have if I hadn’t been there.
