The Columbia session will be held at the Benedict College Business Development Center, 2601 Read St., and the Charleston session will be at the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce – Catalyst Center, 4500 Leeds Ave., on the second floor. Best practices in applying for the SBA Women's Business Center grants will be discussed during the sessions.
