What Women Business Owners Are Saying

"The Maryland Capital Enterprise support team guided us through the business plan writing, financial start up loan paperwork, training in Quick books, facebook and web marketing. We have a very professional facebook page thanks to Cathy Bassett and thanks to Maurice our loan was approved quickly the first time. Most of all the support and friendship I received from Jen and Lisa was unbelievable. They always stopped what they were doing to give me much needed advice and point me in right direction. MCE's support enabled us to have our Grand Opening on November 1st. Thanks MCE for believing in my idea."

"They did everything! The Women's Business Center helped me put together a business plan to start my own transportation company; which included detailed marketing, operational and financial strategies to consider in being able to move forward with my dream. I was also able to obtain financing in order to purchase necessary equipment, vehicles and working capital. Without the support and guidance from the Women's Business Center my dream would not have become a reality."
