Small Business Education
Find the resources you need, from courses on business basics to matching with a professional mentor
In our Educate-Invest-Innovate model, ECDI focuses on growing entrepreneurs as individuals.
ECDI's Women's Business Centers (WBCs) provide a hub for holistic entrepreneur education including training, mentoring and resources. From business basics to succession strategies, we serve all under-served small business owners (including women and men). Through our WBCs, Ohio entrepreneurs have access to workshops, online resources, professional networks, one-on-one mentoring, advice and more.
For some entrepreneurs, training through ECDI or a WBC may enable them to be loan ready. And for some, matching with a mentor for expert advice may enable them to reach a higher level of growth. The ability to provide the education and training needed to strengthen each entrepreneur is one aspect that makes ECDI different than a traditional lender.
