The Renaissance WBC is open Monday through Friday from 9 am – 5 pm, evenings and weekends by appointment.

Renaissance Women’s Business Center is a program of the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Small Business Administration (SBA). The Office of Women’s Business Ownership’s mission is to establish and oversee a network of Women’s Business Centers (WBCs) throughout the United States and its territories. Through the management and technical assistance provided by the WBCs, entrepreneurs – especially women who are economically or socially disadvantaged – are offered comprehensive training and counseling on a vast array of topics to help clients start and grow their own businesses. For more information on the Small Business Administration click here.

All SBA programs and services are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested, at least 2 weeks in advance. Contact: Lucero De Leon at ldeleon@rencenter.org or (415) 348-6217.
