Entrepreneurial Center and Women’s Business Center Honored with Polaris Award
Leadership Greater Hartford is recognizing the Entrepreneurial Center and Women’s Business Center of the University of Hartford with its 2021 Polaris Award.
The award comes following the decision last summer to institute a series of discussions on efforts to promote racial justice and apply new perspectives to the path to business ownership for women of color.
The conversation series meets on a quarterly basis to consistently shine a light on efforts to create more opportunities for women-owned businesses.
The University of Hartford’s Entrepreneurial Center and Women's Business Center was founded in 1985 and provides personalized business advising, educational programs, technical assistance, and networking events to new and expanding small businesses in Connecticut.
The Center focuses on serving women, minority-owned businesses, and other underserved constituents, specializing in turning ideas into viable businesses and break-even companies into sustainable, profitable, and scalable enterprises.
