Self-Employment Training (SET)
WEV’s Women’s Business Center offers a comprehensive 14 week, 56-hour Self-Employment Training (SET) program that is targeted to women (also serves men), and provides guidance on how to start, operate or expand a business.  Participants leave the course with a complete business plan including a marketing plan, a cash flow projection, an operations plan, and a core network to help sustain the business.  The program is offered in both English and Spanish, and provides week-by-week training on topics including finances, marketing and sales, public relations and advertising, legal and insurance issues, record keeping, and how to write a business plan.  After the 14 week course, WEV SET graduates emerge with the most important tools and resources they need to start a new business or grow their current business. 

Since 1991, WEV has helped to create or expand over 2,000 businesses, creating or retaining over 3,000 local jobs.
