WISE Center

On Oct. 11, the business community in the region celebrated Syracuse University receiving a major federal grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to support a new Women’s Business Center (WBC) that will be housed within the University's South Side Innovation Center (SSIC). This new center is called the WISE Center (WISE stands for Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship). You can read more about the WISE Center here.

As SU Chancellor Nancy Cantor said yesterday:
Entrepreneurship is a powerful force that can transform a community. Women-owned businesses comprise more than half of all new start-up businesses and generate billions of dollars in economic activity each year. Now, in previously under-served area like Syracuse’s South Side, women who dream of starting and growing their own business will have access to the resources and expertise to make their dreams come true and to transform not only their own lives, but also their community.
The Center will serve women from all parts of Onondaga County and will also provide services to men. Check the WISE Center web site for more information on the Center's services, as the information becomes available.
