women’s business center
Renaissance’s Women’s Business Center, a partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), provides business training, access to capital and markets and support strategies that are essential to the successful growth of emerging and established women entrepreneurs in San Francisco.
Programs and Services
These orientations will introduce you to Renaissance classes, workshops, programs for women, special events, access to capital, and other services as well as other resources in your community. They will help you determine which programs and services are right for you and your stage of business development.
This intensive class focuses on creating a practical and effective business plan—one of the most useful documents an entrepreneur will ever use. It is a critical management tool for feasibility analysis, operations, marketing and finance and is necessary for accessing capital for business launch and growth.
If you have a business idea, our Start Smart class will help you test the feasibility of that idea, develop foundational business skills and build your business network.
Women Mean Business has been a Women’s series networking program, where women can join fellow women entrepreneurs.
A space for entrepreneurs to share stories of resiliency, strength and support during the COVID-19 crisis. This workshop will be an interactive space, so come prepared to meet and talk with other entrepreneurs and the Renaissance team.
