Administrator Isabel Casillas Guzman, head of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the voice of more than 33 million U.S. small businesses, has announced the selection of 17 new Women’s Business Centers (WBCs), 13 of which will be hosted by established Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) across 10 states. “We have seen a historic Small Business Boom, with women, especially women of color, filing new business applications at double the rates of men,” said administrator Guzman.

“The SBA’s expanding network of Women’s Business Centers is meeting these new and established businesses where they are with resources to help them get funding to grow, create jobs and strengthen our economy. As we celebrate Women’s History Month, the Biden-Harris Administration is proud to double down on its commitment to expanding opportunity and leveling the playing field for women and all those who have been underinvested in for too long.”
