B3 for Women

Home / B3 for Women

Data from the 2016 Status of Women in Florida by County: Poverty and Opportunity Report show us that only 30% of businesses in Southwest Florida are owned by Women. While access to capital is a big barrier for female entrepreneurs, it is not the only reason that fewer women than men start and grow their own businesses. There are currently no resources in SWFL targeted specifically at women thinking about starting and about to start their business.

With the generous support of Comerica, the Women’s Foundation created an online, self-paced video course for female entrepreneurs just getting their business started: Business Building Blocks (B3) for Women. The course provides worksheets and materials to supplement each video lesson. Along with weekly Facebook Live “office hours,” B3 for Women was created to guide entrepreneurs through the intimidating and sometimes confusing process of building a business that will grow and succeed.
