Support Women Entrepreneurs

The Maryland Women’s Business Center (MWBC) is a nonprofit initiative of Rockville Economic Development, Inc. (REDI) that works as an independent program to help women entrepreneurs start, sustain, and grow their businesses with educational opportunities, one-on-one business counseling, and peer group business discussions, referrals to industry experts who provide free advice, and access to other little-known entrepreneurial resources.

With offices in Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Prince George’s County, MWBC plays a major role in bolstering Maryland’s standing as a top state for women business owners. MWBC helps over 1,500 women business owners annually: 

  • Served 1,920 clients
  • Supported 62 new business starts
  • Assisted in 208 jobs created
  • Helped clients generate $3.8 million in business revenue

Our impactful work will continue, but we are seeking to reach and engage a new audience—women entrepreneurs still working full-time jobs. We are finding success with our efforts on social media to establish a relationship with this untapped market.

Your financial support will make it possible to:

  • Offer our beginners’ workshops online. Examples include Orientation to Small Business Resources and ABCs of Starting a Business
  • Host entrepreneurial skills-building webinars
  • Host chats with MWBC Business Counselors and volunteer experts
  • Improve the user experience with MWBC’s Resource Library
