The Center

Who We Are

The WISE WBC is one of 116 women business centers across the nation. We are funded in part by the US Small Business Administration and hosted by the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.

Our team of staff and counselors is dedicating to empowering women small business owners through comprehensive training programs, counseling and connection. If our team can't answer a question, we will connect you with the experts who can.

We serve all aspiring and current small business owners, especially women who are economically or socially disadvantaged.

Our History

WISE was established in 2006 through a unique partnership with Syracuse University. This partnership allows us to confer with and draw in entrepreneurship expertise from the nationally renown Whitman School of Management.

We've had many adventures throughout the years. We celebrate our history, our small business owners, and the special programs we were able to deliver such as the WISE Symposium. We also look forward to our future. We have no doubt it will be full of important work with amazing entrepreneurs, experts, and partners.
