After six years of helping women, the WISE Women's Business Center is proud to say that YES, we are making a difference. We annually counsel more than 275 women (and some men, too!) and train more than 1,000 people in various classes and workshops that we offer. We've conducted weekly roundtable sessions with more than 30 women to discuss topics affecting their businesses fostering great success and support for one another.

It's great to hear these amazing numbers, but it's also great to hear the local stories of challenge and success as well; the big "wins" women entrepreneurs are feeling in Central New York. These stories are about the woman who strives to honor her deceased mom with a new medical business; the woman who opens her dream diner; the woman rejoices when she finds out a way to jump-start the business she's worked for since she was 17 years old.

How can you be one of these women who are making their business dreams come true? First, walk through our door at the The Tech Garden. We'll take it from there. Then it's up to you to put in the hard work. But know this: the WISE Women's Business Center is here to support you and your dreams. The thousand-mile journey starts with a single step!
