Women’s Business Center

Get your business going and growing!

The New Growth Women’s Business Center advances rural entrepreneurs in all stages of business development and growth. We focus on the power and potential of rural women to employ themselves, provide jobs for others, and build their local economies and communities.


We are coaches and connectors. We make sure your business has the right resource at the right time. 

Services are available to men and women, and generally no cost.

The New Growth Women’s Business Center is funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
