Women in Business Weekend Women in Business

There are 8.1 million Women Owned Businesses in the United States. Not. Good. Enough.

Welcome to The Women’s Business Center

The Women’s Business Center (WBC), an initiative of the Entrepreneur Fund, aims to grow the income, influence and leadership of women business owners in our region.  The WBC is a resource to help you start, grow or finance your business; along the way we provide entrepreneurial skill development to help you grow your business and develop as a professional.  

Women are doing more than ever and their journey to success can be unique.  Our job is to support women entrepreneurs, helping them to strengthen their skills, increase their opportunities and network with like-minded colleagues.  We do so by addressing the differing requirements of women in business, increasing the visibility of women leaders, and by serving as a regional resource for women entrepreneurs. 

If we can be of value to you, please contact us; we have offices in Duluth and Virginia, MN and Superior, WI.  We work in collaboration with organizations in Grand Rapids, Ely and Grand Marais.  We serve entrepreneurs throughout an 11 county region in NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin. 

Note: Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least 2 weeks in advance. Contact Kathleen Wicklund at

 The Women’s Business Center is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
