The Women’s Business Center (WBC) at Cornerstone Alliance has helped small business owners start and grow in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren Counties since 2004. By opening the doors of opportunity, we provide access to critical resources such as business counseling, financial education, and responsible financial products.
The WBC promotes and assists in advancing inclusive entrepreneurship and self-sufficiency opportunities. If you are a woman, person of color, veteran, or socially or economically disadvantaged individual, we want to help turn your entrepreneurship dreams into a reality.
