Welcome to the Center for Women in Business

Making Texas #1 for Women-Owned Businesses in the Nation

The State of Texas established TWU's Center for Women in Business in 2015 to fulfill the goal of making the Lone Star State #1 in the United States for women-owned businesses. TWU is now Texas' only university with a focus on female entrepreneurs.

The Center for Women in Business provides the tools for start-ups to succeed, including training, funding, coaching and networking opportunities for prospective business owners and students. 

Our reach extends beyond TWU's three campuses in Denton, Houston and Dallas. Already, The Center for Women in Business has been involved in events in Frisco, Plano, Austin and San Antonio, with plans of expansion across Texas.

Funding will be provided, in various amounts, for research (total of up to $10,000 awarded biannually).  For more information please contact the Center for Women in Business 940-898-2895 or email
