Employee Training Is A TV Away

Center Connects Women With Venture Capital

National - The center for Women and Enterprise in Boston, with financial backing from the Fleet Financial Group, has created a new program called the Venture Center to connect women entrepreneurs with both venture capital and individual investors. Though targeted toward women, the Venture Center's services are available to women and men nationwide.

The Venture Center provides a variety of services to help prepare entrepreneurs to meet investors, including a weekend business-plan boot camp. Business owners not able to attend a boot camp can contact the center for referrals to local organizations that can assist them in preparing a business plan.

Once an entrepreneur has his or her business plan in hand, center personnel work individually with business owners, either in person or over the phone, to craft strategies for approaching investors. Contact the Venture Center at (617) 423-3001, ext. 222 for more information.
