The Women’s Business Development Council is expanding. The nonprofit opened the doors to its brand new office in downtown New London.
“We really wanted to be in the hub, where the excitement was happening,” said Fran Pastore, CEO of the WBDC.
The nonprofit, dedicated to helping women in business thrive, first expanded to eastern Connecticut in 2018. They had a small location in a New London office building, but felt that their clients needed a storefront location.
The new office on Bank Street is in the heart of downtown at 61 Bank St., filling an old building that has been empty for nearly a year.
