Have a business idea but not sure how to get started? Get all the tools, support and financing you need by signing up for GE Capital’s Banking on Women™ 15-week course. They’ve extended the application deadline until July 17th 2012.

GE is sponsoring this course, so there’s no cost to you. So if you register, you’ll get networking opportunities, a mentor from GE Capital, information about opportunities for women in Utah and access to financing from the Utah Microenterprise Loan Fund for FREE.

Since this is a pilot program in Salt Lake (Banking on Women™ helps women in nine countries), organizers are looking for a large number of participants. The program is a joint effort between GE Capital, the Utah Microenterprise Loan Fund, and the Women’s Business Institute at Salt Lake Community College. If you are an entrepreneur (or a prospective one), or you know someone who‘s thinking of starting a business, please apply or tell them about this program.

This program is designed for women who don’t have access to traditional funding and who are looking to start or expand small businesses. To get more information or to download an application, visit or email
