As part of our overall mission statement, one of our objectives is to provide support and low cost space for woman-owned micro and small businesses. To achieve this objective, we have created the Biz Collective. The entrepreneurs who participate assist in fulfilling the mission of WomanSpace Rolla, and believe their businesses are well served by being in a collaborative environment that supports them as entrepreneurs, while also encouraging them to work toward building up the community. Together, we form a symbiotic relationship between the worlds of non-profit and small business. We encourage you to check out what each one has to offer our community, and contact us if you’re interested in becoming part of the Biz Collective.
