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 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. 

With a focus on the North Texas area and TWU's three campuses in Denton, Houston and Dallas, the Center for Women in Business is committed to helping women reach their goals to be entrepreneurs and successful business owners.
