The Salt Lake Chamber Women’s Business Center (WBC) empowers women through resources and support, so they can discover new opportunities, enjoy their entrepreneurial creations, and experience the success and freedom they desire.
The WBC was established November 1997 as a partnership between the Salt Lake Chamber and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA provides a federal grant to the WBC to assist women in Utah start and grow successful small businesses through training, resources, and support.
