2017 Pathway WBC Annual Report

Support for entrepreneurs. Any stage. Any industry.

A heartfelt “thank you” to the stakeholders, volunteers, mentors, and clients who engaged with Pathway Women’s Business Center in 2017 – our third full year in business.

Much like the businesses we serve, Pathway WBC has spent its first three years working through evolutions. Evolutions in client services, building capacity, and refining programming to build the foundation of a program to serve business owners for many years to come.

The results have been tremendous.

In 2017, we served 881 unique clients, hosted 169 education sessions, provided 5,600 mentoring hours, and secured $1.1 million in financing for clients.

We launched 7 cohorts, graduated 42 entrepreneurs, and recruited 60 mentors for our new comprehensive mentoring program, Ignite 360. We also formed new partnerships with innovative organizations like Corner to Corner and McGruder Family Resource Center.
