Notes from Around the Region

Community Resources

Launch Women Business Builder Program is seeking applicants for pilot cohort

From Women’s Economic Opportunity Center FAQ Sheet

Women-owned businesses in Indiana are under-represented—lack of access to capital, entrepreneurial tools, mentoring, and resources. Most women-owned businesses remain a solopreneur. That’s perfectly fine for some. For female founders demanding more, we offer Launch Women Business Builder.
