How We Can Help

Women’s Business Center @JSU (WBC @JSU) will provide valuable resources for business counseling and mentoring, access to capital, contracting training, outreach events, increase business knowledge, and increase technical and marketing skills of women-owned business enterprises. These goals align with the federal government efforts to a level playing field for women business owners. The mission of the WBC @JSU is to provide business and technical assistance to help develop the contracting capabilities of women seeking federal contracting dollars as WOSB and EDWOSB in Mississippi to help them grow and sustain their business in order to contribute to job growth and the long-term economic impact of the Mississippi economy.

To assist women the WBC @JSU will focus on five main areas.

  • Acquiring financial and investment capital
  • Securing Small Business Contracting
  • Increasing Business Knowledge
  • Technical and Marketing Skills
  • Technology Transfer and Commercialization



Our goal is to be at the heart of the entrepreneurship journey as businesses expand across MS.
