"Toast wouldn't be here without the WSBP. By the time I finished I had everything I needed to pitch investors, send out a press release and start selling. Also the support I gained from the WSBP network was invaluable. It literally kept us going our first three years of business."

"The more I have, the more I can give. There's no guilt in having money or being smart or receiving benefits. With this class, I have to reframe that. There's enough for everyone."
Janet Carscadden, Evolution Physical Therapy and Yoga
"The Women's Small Business Program gave me the tools and foundation I needed to pursue my dream and get my business up and running in less than a year."
"With WSBP, my confidence has improved greatly. There's a sense of readiness that's been instilled. Take the class every five years as a part of renewal!"
