BOC Women’s Business Center

Training, one-on-one counseling, networking, and financing resources to help women entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses.

BOC Network operates two Small Business Association (SBA) Women’s Business Centers that collectively support aspiring entrepreneurs and current business owners, with locations in Brooklyn, Staten Island,  Bronx, and Upper Manhattan. Our Women’s Business Centers offer business training, one-on-one counseling, and financing resources to help women entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses. 

At each Women’s Business Center, our trained bilingual business and professional development counselors offer guidance on a variety of topics from finance and lending to legal advice. By educating, empowering, and building a community of women entrepreneurs, the WBC contributes to the economic, cultural, and social vitality of our communities.
