Ignite Sessions – For Any Step of the Entrepreneurial Journey

Are you looking to launch your own business?

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

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

In an Ignite session:

  • You will meet one-on-one via Zoom with a member of the WBC team.
  • Our counselor will conduct a thorough review of where you are and where you want to go.
  • You will receive an actionable plan to help you launch or grow your business.   Some of those steps may be taken within the Women’s Business Center at Canisius College while some may be with our various community partners.

Ignite Sessions are generally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays as follows:

  • 8:30 am to 9:30 am
  • 9:45 am to 10:45 am 
  • 5:15 pm to 6:15 pm
