The WISE Women's Business Center features ongoing training programs all year long, targeting women entrepreneurs at various stages of entrepreneurial development. The Center also provides periodic workshops and special entrepreneurial events that offer important opportunities for learning, networking and mentoring. WISE Women's Business Center clients are offered the opportunity to participate in programs of the South Side Innovation Center as well as the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship at the Whitman School of Management. All events will include opportunities for individual follow-up counseling, coaching, mentoring and training.
The objectives of all training and events are to provide information, resources, and support for women entrepreneurs, enabling each to successfully advance their businesses to the next stage of profitability and success. Our goal is to create a thriving community of women entrepreneurs in Syracuse and Onondaga County one venture at a time.
