The Women’s Business Development Council and city of New London are partnering to give small businesses in the area a financial and educational boost.

WBDC officially opened the doors to a new office space on Bank Street downtown in New London in October.

In addition to the office space, the organization partnered with the city to offer a small business grant program specific to New London-based businesses.

“With increased visibility and accessibility, not only can we bring even more support to the entrepreneurs and businesses across eastern Connecticut, but we can also be more engaged with this wonderful community,” WBDC founder and CEO Fran Pastore said.

“We are also thrilled to partner with the City of New London to offer grants that will help New London’s small businesses grow and continue to contribute to the vitality of the community.”
