Opened in 2016, the Vermont Women's Business Center operates in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration. We offer consultations, workshops and networking opportunities to help you reach your entrepreneurial goals.

Community Navigator Pilot Project

CWE Vermont’s Women’s Business Center (CWE VT) is thrilled to be joining the Community Navigator Pilot Project in partnership with the Vermont Small Business Development Center (VT SBDC) ‘hub’ and 9 small business assistance program ‘spokes’ from across the state. Through this collaborative program, we are joining with our partners to provide technical assistance to even more rural Vermonters, women, LGBTQ+, veterans, BIPOC Vermonters, and New American community members so they can make an informed decision about business ownership and growth in their lives!

Our Community Expectations

Welcome to the Center for Women & Enterprise community! We are excited to work with you! CWE programming is delivered in alignment with our company’s core values: respect, equity, collaboration, innovation, diversity, and joy. We are committed to providing a safe space for learning and connecting for everyone. We celebrate all humans, inclusive of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity or other identifiers. We do our best to approach our programming from a feminist perspective that is secular and non-partisan, and are committed to doing better. We are committed to guaranteeing a safe, enjoyable, and meaningful experience for our clients, facilitators, counselors and staff. By participating in our programs, you agree to these principles. We reserve the right to remove participants from any session in the event of violation of these principles.
