About the EC
The Entrepreneurship Center at WCC is a meeting place and resource hub open to the public. Our purpose is to connect the community to resources and professional assistance in order to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to market.
For current business owners and future entrepreneurs, we offer one-on-one appointments to assist you with your business questions and challenges. If you are interested in meeting with us, please submit a Business Assistance Request and we will be in touch!
Wi-Fi and technology resources are available or you can Bring Your Own Device and connect. Visit us on Free Coffee Wednesdays during the school year from 10am – 2pm for free coffee and snacks to connect with others interested in small business in a comfortable, informal setting (check dates on our calendar)!
Pitch @ WCC 2018 has come and gone, and we had excellent pitches, an enthusiastic audience and awesome business ideas! We even got to see a video update on last year’s Grow Category winner, Alicia Myers of A’s Custom ESL Tutoring, filmed by R.E.D. Jennings.
Thanks to GoWork CoWork for their sponsorship and memberships offered to the winners, to our MC Kim Hurns and our DJ Dan Curtis. See our winner list and learn more about this annual event on our Pitch @ WCC page here: http://ec.wccnet.edu/pitchwcc
