Women's Business Center - Business Coaching Program

Whether you are a current business owner or new to entrepreneurship, you will want the tools and resources to help you identify and overcome common barriers to effectively reach your optimal potential. Our no-cost consultations allow you to meet with an experienced coach and business development specialist who will guide you through the entrepreneurial journey.  The Women's Business Center Program at weVENTURE, in collaboration with Florida Tech's Nathan M. Bisk College of Business and the Center for Entrepreneurship and New Business Development, and the University Business Incubator, provide these services to entrepreneurs in our community.

The Women's Business Center at weVENTURE offers a business coaching program that assists start-ups and established business owners (1-2 years) who could benefit from one-on-one counseling sessions with experienced business coaches and trained volunteers who provide positive support, feedback and advice to individuals who wish to utilize our programs and services. 

Our Business Coaching Program follows best practices in business coaching and offers an accountability element in support of emerging entrepreneurs and start-ups, and include one or more of the following activities:

  • All first time business coaching participants are encouraged to attend a Launch Your Venture 101 webinar (offered monthly).
  • First session is a consultation, completed face-to-face, followed by one or more of the following activities:
    • a one-on-one counseling session to create your Individual Entrepreneurial Plan (IEP)
    • monthly 15 minute follow-up phone or email check-in to see how you are progressing
    • small group cohort sessions (peer-to-peer support) on how to use and incorporate the Business Model Canvas to better understand how your business activity will flow
  • This is a program designed to offer long-term counseling support to business owners and entrepreneurs.
  • This is NOT a mentoring program.  Business coaches provide the needed guidance, and business fundamentals to develop a strong business model for success based on your strengths.

These coaching sessions are offered at no-cost and are completely confidential.

The Women's Business Center is currently looking for Volunteer Business Coaches for our programs. If you are an experienced business professional and are interested in helping start-up entrepreneurs and small business owners to move forward, we would like to hear from you.
