Coronavirus (COVID-19): Policy Update

Currently, ACE Women’s Business Center is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays for in-person visits. On other days our services are offered virtually. We look forward to continuing to assist Georgia’s entrepreneurs!

What We Do

The mission for the ACE Women’s Business Center is to empower women, minorities, and low-to-moderate income entrepreneurs through financial education and training.

The ACE Women’s Business Center understands the needs of small businesses, both start-ups and existing businesses. We know the challenges small businesses face, and we have the knowledge and experience to provide the training and support small business owners need to be successful.

Funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, our office is conveniently located in Savannah State University – Graduate School, a historically black university (HBCU) located in downtown Savannah. The ACE Women’s Business Center (WBC) provides a full range of services for women entrepreneurs at all stages of planning, implementation, and growth.
