The WESST Enterprise Center in Las Cruces was established in 1995 and serves aspiring and existing small business owners (men and women) in seven counties in Southwest New Mexico: Dona Ana, Luna, Hidalgo, Grant, Catron, Sierra, and Otero. They are one of six WESST offices housing a Women’s Business Center Program, funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The WBC program was founded to foster the growth of woman-owned businesses by providing access to education, training, mentoring, business development and financing opportunities to women throughout the United States and its territories.
The Women’s Business Center Program at WESST’s Las Cruces regional office offers a variety of training and consulting services geared to, but not limited to women. They understand the unique opportunities and challenges faced by women entrepreneurs and have designed special programs accordingly.
