Partnership brings Women’s Business Center back to Treasure Valley

The Boise and Twin Falls areas will soon have new Women’s Business Centers up and running after several years without one.

The US Small Business Administration, the Idaho Hispanic Foundation and the University of Idaho joined together on the project.

Before the partnership, Idaho was one of the only states in the country without a Women’s Business Center. Two earlier attempts shut down due to a lack of local funding. Three previous attempts to start new WBCs failed.

“The mission of the Idaho WBC is to serve all women, cultures and communities in achieving their educational, professional and entrepreneurial goals,” Diane Bevan, President and CEO of the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce said. “This is an exciting time to be part of such an important work as Idaho continues to thrive.”

WBCs offer counseling, training, networking opportunities, mentoring and other services to women in business.

A news release did not indicate locations or opening dates for the Treasure Valley or Magic Valley centers.
