2015 Annual Report

PWBC Cover 2015What a first year we have had! Since being awarded a Women’s Business Center from the U.S. Small Business Administration we have been busy listening and responding to the needs of women entrepreneurs across Tennessee. This has truly been an exciting – and sometimes exhausting – opportunity for us.

In our first year, we took special care to understand the unique needs of business owners from all stages, sizes and industries as they seek to reach economic stability and empowerment. We strive to be an inclusive community, who’s only mission is to help accelerate the impact of all women entrepreneurs on Tennessee’s economy.

We believe we’ve been successful, as attendance and coaching requests continue to outpace our earlier estimates. In 2015, we hosted 64 educational events and reached 611 clients. We supported the launch of 22 new businesses and helped our clients access an additional $1.75 million in financing. And we’re just getting started! We hope this annual report offers a glimpse of what’s possible when entrepreneurs are empowered through education, coaching, and capital access.
