Indy Chamber Programs

Central Indiana Women in Business

The Central Indiana Women’s Business Center (CIWBC) is a cooperative program, funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, under the umbrella of the Business Ownership Initiative of Indiana (BOI) and a program of the Indy Chamber; designed to promote the creation and growth of businesses by women entrepreneurs by empowering them towards successful entrepreneurship and economic self-sufficiency.

Open Monday – Friday (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
Evening and weekend hours available by appointment

The Jacqueline Troy Inspired Fund (JTIF) honors the legacy of our former Director of the Central Indiana Women’s Business Center, Jacqueline Troy. Jackie was a brilliant, passionate leader for CIWBC and BOI with a servant’s heart and a bias toward action. Her accomplishments were countless, including securing hundreds of thousands of grant dollars to support regional small businesses, numerous hours of one-on-one business coaching, and being a true champion for women entrepreneurs.

The Jacqueline Troy Inspired Fund allows women to support fellow women on their entrepreneurial journeys. With the generosity of individual donors, BOI and CIWBC can continue to provide the resources and tools necessary to help entrepreneurs start and grow with the support they need.
