SCWIB Founder, Ariel Shaw, MBA, said that “during the pandemic we realized how many businesses were lacking the education needed to run a business, were lacking foundation, and were locked out of the funding that came from the local and the federal government. We are ensuring the women who enroll in this program are solid in their business and its foundation. We appreciate partners such as The Coca Cola Company that leapt into action to assist these female entrepreneurs.”

The Southern Crescent Women In Business Center is positioned to lead in the region to assist in training female entrepreneurs and women in business. According to Shaw, “We are here to help transform the economic landscape on the Southside of the Atlanta Metro Region and throughout the surrounding region.”
