About Us

Our mission is to empower women entrepreneurs to build resilient and successful businesses, strengthen their community’s economy, and create wealth for their families.

We achieve this by providing a wide-range of services, including one-on-one business counseling, group training events, and peer-to-peer exchanges to help entrepreneurs start, expand, and successfully manage their businesses. 

The DCWBC  delivers business development services to women entrepreneurs in the Washington, DC Metro region. The Center provides one-on-one free counseling and training workshops designed to help women start and grow businesses. We target women entrepreneurs who are economically or socially disadvantaged and whose businesses are located in underserved communities.

The Center is funded in part by the Small Business Administration (SBA) and is a program of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC). NCRC launched the DCWBC in March 2010. In May 2015, the DCWBC was honored by the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Washington Metropolitan Area District Office (WMADO) with the Women’s Business Center Excellence Award for our excellence and innovation in assisting women entrepreneurs by providing a wide variety of training and coaching services.

Small businesses are the heart of every community and the DCWBC works to secure their ongoing success for those in the DC Metro region.
