New Women’s Business Center Established at Virginia Union University

A new women’s business center located on the campus of Virginia Union University in Richmond is the result of a partnership between the historically Black school and the National Institute of Economic Development.

The center will serve as a resource to provide business counseling, training, technical assistance and networking for entrepreneurs in the Richmond market, according to the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education.

“Virginia Union University is excited to serve as home to the Women’s Business Center of Richmond,” Hakim Lucas, president of Virginia Union University, said in a statement. “Building generational wealth through education and entrepreneurship is core to our mission. By supporting them with resources, we empower women to turn the skills and passions into viable and thriving businesses.”

Dannellia Gladden-Green, who will serve as executive director of the center, will be responsible for client relationship management, business counseling, leading solutions engagement efforts, developing partnerships, and creating new business leaders’ opportunities to have greater access to capital, the Journal reported.

“For such a time as this, the Women Business Center of Richmond will become a leading complement to the entrepreneurial efforts of, for, and through women-owned enterprises, and I am excited to add my leadership to the team, making this center a reality for the Richmond community,” Gladden-Green said.
