Local Chamber to Offer Connection to Women’s Business Center

A program that is changing lives for aspiring entrepreneurs on the Wasatch Front will soon be offered in the Uintah Basin. According to Vernal Chamber Director Joel Brown, the Salt Lake Chamber is reaching out to rural Utah in an effort to expand the reach of their Women’s Business Center. “This program is helping women, and men too, to have the tools they need to start their own businesses,” shares Brown. “They want to expand and help rural Utah residents tonhave the same opportunities as those in the city.” The Salt Lake Chamber Women’s Business Center is one of nearly 100 centers in the United States that are “designed to assist women in starting and growing small businesses.” It is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Soon, the resources available through the Salt Lake Chamber will be available through the Vernal Area Chamber website. The Women’s Business Center provides entrepreneurial consulting, professional training and premier networking opportunities.
