The mission of the Women’s Business Center of Utah is to help women build confidence, create their own opportunities and experience success in business ownership. We provide clients with a personal mentor, online and virtual training, and opportunities to learn with a group of women business owners. As a measure of impact, last year the Women’s Business Center of Utah served more than 3,500 Utah women business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs, which resulted in 110 new businesses that were started, 321 new jobs created by those women, $19.5 million dollars in revenue earned and they accessed a total of $1.4 million dollars. Our services are open and available to anyone.  At the Women’s Business Center of Utah we work with minority entrepreneurs and those aspiring to start a new venture. We provide a free course on starting your dream business, and encourage our clients to join the Stay Safe to Stay Open pledge to protect our economy.
