09/30/2004 - SBA Funds Women's Business Center

Spokane will soon have a Women's Business Center thanks to a $150,000 grant awarded by the Small Business Administration. With local matching funds, the grant reaches $231,170 for the first year. The Inland Northwest Community Access Network (TINCAN) is the recipient of the grant, and Karen Michaelson is Project Director. TINCAN is in the Courtyard Office Center at 827 W First Avenue. News of the award came on September 24.

Women's Business Centers have been created across the United States for the purpose of providing business counseling, technical assistance, and training to women. These women may be considering starting a business, or they may already be in business. Women who are socially and economically disadvantaged, low income women, and those whose businesses are located in areas of high unemployment or low income are especially welcome at Women's Business Centers. "The Women's Business Center will be an important tool for regional entrepreneurial development." says Michaelson. "We hope this will strengthen collaborative relationships to support women business owners."

In addition, the program will create two full-time jobs and one part-time job. The Center is required to operate evenings and weekends, as needed, to reach the maximum number of women in need of business counseling. Internet training in the business uses of the Internet, Web site design and development, and courses in e-commerce are also requirements of the grant.

The Spokane Women's Business Center is a bit too new to have its Web site created. For more information on the Women's Business Center program nationally, visit: www.onlinewbc.gov.
