Anything that has to do with running a small business!
Suzi Berget-White is the Director of the Montana Women’s Business Center (MWBC) based in Bozeman and hosted by Prospera Business Network. The MWBC provides a comprehensive array of business services, including group training and individual business counseling, tailored to the needs of start-up and nascent businesses and aspiring women entrepreneurs throughout the state.
Suzi focuses a majority of her time to providing no-cost confidential business counseling to clients focusing on business start-up, business plan review, financial review and analysis, marketing plan assistance, managing a business, cash flow management, financing, human resources and any other questions small business owners might have. The MWBC operates as part of Prospera Business Network and Suzi works together with their team to achieve MWBC program goals.
As a senior development professional with more than fifteen years of fundraising experience, White has overseen all activities including writing and managing grants, soliciting sponsors for annual and capital campaign purposes, organizing events and industry conferences, as well as supervising advisory board and committee members, staff, interns, and vendors. As a small business owner she has successfully launched and brought to market three businesses and effectively expanded (and sold) a construction business.
Prior to joining Prospera, White worked at the Property & Environment Research Center overseeing all development activities and as the Development and Benefit Events Manager at the Museum of the Rockies, where she worked closely with donors and produced three major annual fundraisers for the organization. White is also the co-owner of Ferrous Wheel Design, a sculpture and home décor company, and previously owned Suzi White Consulting, a small business counseling firm that provided assistance with human resources, marketing, and fundraising activities.
