We offer a customized business mentoring program called IGNITE 360, business coaching and one-on-one counseling sessions, business education workshops, technical assistance, and networking opportunities.

    We invite all women entrepreneurs and those just thinking about becoming entrepreneurs to come explore all the benefits of weVENTURE. We also encourage everyone in the community to join us at events and connect with our vast network of professionals from across the region. Business leaders from all walks are invited to become an ally and support the mission of weVENTURE by sharing their time and expertise as an IGNITE 360 mentor.

    Small business is the backbone of economic development in the United States. More than half of all new jobs created are due to small business. Women-owned small businesses have grown at breakneck pace over the last two decades. According to research by the National Women's Business Council, women-owned small businesses grew at twice the rate of all U.S. privately held firms between 1997 and 2006, and from 2007 to 2012, the number of women-owned firms increased by 23.4%.
