This will allow WBCUtah to provide resources and services to female business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in Utah’s southern cities such as St. George, Blanding, Moab and Price.
"We are excited to expand our services to Utah’s women business owners in the 15 southern rural counties. What differentiates us from other business services is the personal connection and mentoring that we offer to our clients,” said Debbie Drake, southern program director of the Women’s Business Center of Utah. “Additionally, we will work to strengthen the network of services offered to all of Southern Utah by partnering, collaborating and connecting with the existing BRCs, SBDCs, chambers of commerce and other resources in the area to encourage and promote successful entrepreneurial ventures for the mothers, daughters and sisters of our community."
Through the new Cedar City office, women business owners will be able to enjoy local mentorship and support and build technical skill through entrepreneurial training. The Women’s Business Center of Utah provides strong female-focused services help women build their confidence, create new opportunities and experience success in small businesses ownership.
"I had been in business over 14 years when I finally caught wind of the Women's Business Center of Utah in Salt Lake City. As I have interacted with them over the past year, I have come to determine that this organization is as close to a "one stop shopping" resource as I've experienced in relation to not just getting your business off the ground but for guidance in growing your business as well,” said Lori Hanna, owner of Perk! Espresso & Smoothies. “The new Cedar City office will be a tremendous aid to Business Women in Southern Utah."
The new office is located in the Southern Utah University Business Resource Center (510 W 800 S, Cedar City, UT 84720) and will be open Monday-Friday from 8AM to 5PM.
The Women’s Business Center of Utah (WBC Utah) is a nonprofit organization that helps Utah women business owners start and grow successful business enterprises through individual mentorship and group in-person and online training. The organization is in part funded through a Cooperative Agreement between the Salt Lake Chamber and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
