Women and minority entrepreneurs in Buffalo, New York, will soon get a big boost to their business through a program called the Allstate Minority and Women Emerging Entrepreneurs program (MWEE). This new program is funded by a $75,000 grant from Allstate Foundation.

The program is offered at the University at Buffalo School of Management’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL). Women and minority business owners are encouraged to apply for the program which includes many services that will help small businesses in the area grow and thrive. The program will include help with developing business plans, finding business resources and reconnecting with other business owners.

The purpose of the program is to teach small business owners how to become successful. The program is focused on minority and women business owners who face significant challenges in starting their own businesses.
