- access to capital consulting and events
- federal contracting opportunities

The Women’s Business Center at JEDI was designated in 2014 and increases the vitality of people and communities through spirited and skillful business development, equitable capital access, and local wealth creation opportunities. We offer training, mentorship, expert guidance, access to resources, and community-building to the underserved small business owners of far Northern California with an intent to connect people, community, and opportunities to support the growth of thriving businesses and a resilient local economy. The WBC maintains two offices serving the North state in Mount Shasta and second office in Redding, CA. Learn more about JEDI www.jedieconomy.org
We are funded through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and supported by the SBA’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership.
Women’s Business Centers (WBCs) represent a national network of over 100 educational centers throughout the United States and its territories, which are designed to assist women in starting and growing small businesses and the WBC at JEDI sits on the steering committee for the California Women’s Business Center Network. WBCs seek to “level the playing field” for women entrepreneurs, who still face unique obstacles in the business world.
Your business is our economy, so let us see how we can help you get started today!
