About the JWBC
The Jacksonville Women’s Business Center (JWBC), a program of the JAX Chamber Foundation, was created in the fall, 2004 through a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Our mission is to advance the success of women entrepreneurs at every stage of business development. For 10 years, JWBC has served women entrepreneurs in Northeast Florida and is classified annually as a top-tier center by the SBA based on client outcomes and best practices.
The JWBC is led by a volunteer Advisory Board.
