Tampa is one of the leading cities when it comes to the growth, empowerment and elevation of female-led businesses in the nation. The Tampa Bay Women's Business Centre (WBC) is an integral part of the growth and development of female entreprenuers in Tampa Bay and surrounding areas.

The Tampa Bay Women's Business Centre (WBC), is part of a national network of WBC's dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs to launch and grow their own businesses. Funded through the Federal office of Women's Business Ownership, our team of professionals help women with training and coaching in entrepreneurial readiness, business plan development, networking, strategic planning, finance preparedness, career transition and access to capital.

It is currently the only WBC funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) on the West Coast of Florida serving the needs of start-ups and existing women-owned business in our area.




Growth in women-owned businesses in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area in the past year has outpaced the rest of the nation, and other major metro areas in Flroida as well. Florida was ranked No. 1 among states in growth of women-owned firms over a longer period of time, from 2007 to 2018, with an 87.8 percent increase in the numbewr of companies owned by women in the past 11 years.

Female Entrepreneurship, identifying entrepreneurs as those who solve problems, transform the way we do things, create jobs, spur economic growth and drive prosperity, according to the American Express State of Women-Owned Businesses Report for 2018.
