Women’s Business Center at Canisius College

We continue to develop training and networking opportunities to empower women business owners to grow their business. We are now also working to support women business owners at every stage of their business growth. We don’t compete with other service providers; we build relationships with the experts and the agencies in the area and collaborate with them to bring a wide and strong net of support to the business owner.


Empowerment: Ignite the spirit of entrepreneurship! The WBC empowers women in business to move forward with confidence to build and strengthen their enterprises and networks.

Engagement: Interact with the local business community! Connect with business leaders, business coaches, and other business owners at the WBC.

Education: Work smarter, not harder! Discover new ways of working through a range of business development programs; learn about everything from MWBE contracting to bookkeeping and digital marketing.
Support: Get a partner you can count on! The WBC help clients in all stages of their business development, from the newly established to more experienced owners who want to take their business to the next level.
