Women-Owned Business Series

Texas is home to 3 million business with 99.8% of those being small businesses, and 1.25 million are women owned!

The Governor’s Commission for Women is dedicated to making Texas the No. 1 state for women-owned businesses and to continue making Texas a place for women entrepreneurs to thrive and inspire others.

The Governor’s Commission for Women in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism will host two live, in-person events to connect women-owned businesses with the resources and networking opportunities to succeed.

Each event will take a deeper dive into important topics and available resources for women-owned small businesses and women entrepreneurs. The events are an opportunity to listen and learn and to connect with subject-matter experts and support systems.
