Wenatchee Valley College Center for Entrepreneurship

The mission of the Center for Entrepreneurship at Wenatchee Valley College is to assist existing and future entrepreneurs by providing a one-stop access point for regional resources in training, business development, and doing business in NCW.


WVC’s Center for Entrepreneurship is located in Wenatchee and serves entrepreneurs in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan Counties as well as the Colville Confederated Tribes.

The Center for Entrepreneurship offers four StartUp Bootcamps a year, two sessions delivered in English and two delivered in Spanish. We run 1 Million Cups (12+ events per year) and Office Hours (8 - 12 events per year). WVC’s Center for Entrepreneurship is also the administrator of the regional MicroMentor program and SEAP programs, both of which are in partnership with state-wide or region-wide organizations. We are a critical partner in the Supernova Business Launch Competition and with the Entrepreneurship Toolkit created with the North Central Regional Libraries.

In addition to our programs, we’ve created strong relationships with our Spanish-speaking community and with a number of organizations in our region that support Hispanic entrepreneurs, including Café and the Hispanic Business Council. Our greatest resource for entrepreneurs is the StartUp NCW website that includes information about the programs, resources, and organizations that serve all types of entrepreneurs in the North Central Washington region.
