Who Are We?
The Baltimore Metropolitan Women Business Center located at the historic Morgan State University has been funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for the delivery of assistance primarily to women and women owned small businesses. The SBA Women Business Centers act as catalysts for providing in-depth, substantive, outcome-oriented business services, including training, counseling, and technical assistance, to women entrepreneurs. By providing training and counseling on a wide variety of topics through WBCs, the SBA meets the needs of the individual client in the local marketplace. Funding has been provided by the SBA to work with socially and economically disadvantaged women business owners who may have experienced supply chain disruptions, staffing challenges, a decrease in gross receipts or customers, or a closure as a result of COVID-19.
