We offer guidance and complimentary professional advice from ideation and concept, through start-up and operation, to the early growth and expansion stages of business.

The opportunity to develop supports focused on women entrepreneurs launched in 2019 with funding received from FedDev Ontario through the Women Entrepreneurship Strategy. RISE is a network of organizations that empower women entrepreneurs operating in the Windsor-Essex, region located in Southwestern Ontario Canada. Founded by Invest WindsorEssex, and led by the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre in partnership with the University of Windsor’s EPICentre, Workforce WindsorEssex, WEtech Alliance, Build-A-Dream and Windsor Essex Capital Angel Network (WECAN) we are working together to support and encourage more women to start and grow entrepreneurial endeavours.

“The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Centre is excited to once again be part of the StrikeUP conference in 2022. Building a community of women leaders and entrepreneurs inspires us daily to be confident about the future prosperity of our community.”
