First in name
and first in the nation! Womens
Founded in 1989, the Womens Business Center was the first incubator in the nation to teach entrepreneurship to women according to a development methodology specifically designed for women business owners and totally without grants, gifts, donations, contributions or public funding. We're not a charity. We don't have our hand out and we're not your tax dollar at work. We're independent and very proud of it. We teach our clients to be that way, too. You've probably noticed that our name has been widely copied.
We pioneered "hands-on" entrepreneurial
development programs to accelerate business growth for entrepreneurs in emerging
service businesses by:
The result is our clients have garnered
virtually every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally and even
internationally, and they continue to do so today. Further, in a 5 year period, 6 women
with the incubators were recognized as "Women of Excellence" by the powerful and
prestigious Federation of Houston Professional Women.
We've also had recognition and positions of leadership in NAWBO,
and PWI, just to name a few.
Should you already be in another business incubator/accelerator, working with a tax-funded small business development group or working with the tax-funded programs for women and not achieving the progress you think possible, consult with our Director of Research for guidance in the advancement of your business without impacting your existing relationships.
We don't enable. We EMPOWER!
