The Center for Women & Enterprise and Surfside Capital Advisors Partner to Enhance Spanish-Language Programs

The Center for Women & Enterprise’s Eastern Massachusetts Women’s Business Center (CWE Eastern MA) was chosen by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to be one of 14 organizations from across the country to receive a Resiliency and Recovery Demonstration Grant. This grant, monitored by the SBA’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership (OWBO), funds innovative programs targeted at women-owned businesses impacted by the pandemic.

As a recipient of this grant, CWE Eastern MA is partnering with Surfside Capital Advisors to provide services targeted at Spanish-speaking women entrepreneurs in the region. This bilingual program features a comprehensive needs assessment, which will be followed by workshops, a business planning multiweek course, individual consultations, and a networking event. This collaborative program will strategically engage on-demand translation and interpreter services, as well as trusted community partners with expertise in serving the Spanish-speaking community in Eastern Massachusetts. It will result in at least 200 hours of direct service to entrepreneurs looking to launch or recover a business in the wake of the pandemic.
