Women’s Enterprise Centre and Vancity are relaunching a program to help women access funds, create new networking opportunities and receive business advice from experienced mentors.
The Unity Women Entrepreneurs Program is available to those who identify as women or non-binary. It offers a new operating line of credit option for startups, broader eligibility requirements and a streamlined application process.
The Vancity Unity Women Entrepreneur Loan is available to start-up businesses and those who have been in operation for more than 12 months. The startup loan tops out at $20,000, while the growth loan offers as much as $100,000.
Meanwhile, Kelowna-based WEC will offer support services for participating businesses through mentoring programs.
