"I give a WSBA scholarship to a women business owner in central Ohio every year because when I started my business, I would have embraced this opportunity. The intensive classes and workshops with business owner instructors would have really helped me get started faster and smarter. Having this type of complete educational business experience for women can be the difference between failing and succeeding when starting or growing a business in our community."

Inspire and empower a woman business leader of tomorrow...TODAY!
