Capstone Community Action has proudly offered the services of the Vermont Women’s Business Center since 2002 in partnership with the US Small Business Administration (SBA).
We have assisted more than 6,000 women with business counseling, training, access to financing, and support as they have navigated the path to starting up or growing their business. Their growth and success have been our successes as we have followed them along this path to creating wealth for their families and contributing to their communities.
The Vermont Women’s Business Center has ceased operations under the auspices of Capstone Community Action and the SBA. We encourage women seeking to start or expand a business to call any number of business assistance organizations and individuals in Vermont. Here are just a few of them:
