The Women’s Business Enterprise Center – East (WBEC-East) offers a full-service continuum of resources and programming to women entrepreneurs – from start-up design, business consulting, and certification assistance, to directly connecting members to supplier diversity initiatives and procurement opportunities. Funding for many of our start-up programs comes from our partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership. Additionally, as a regional partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), WBEC-East administers WBENC’s national certification standard for women business enterprise (WBE) certification throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of Delaware, and eight counties in southern New Jersey.
