The WBC is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Women's Business Center

In addition to our work as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), Grow is designated as a Women’s Business Center (WBC) by the US Small Business Administration. Women own or co-own 45% of all businesses in the United States. The majority are small, with great potential for growth in both revenues and job creation. As a WBC, we seek to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs, who may face unique obstacles in the business world.
