If you are a woman business owner, Houston is a great place to be. Texas ranks 3rd in the nation for the number of women owned businesses.
The face of corporate America is changing and many of our Houston award programs reflect that shift. We’ve had several women owned businesses that are FastTech 50 winners, most recently, Janice Anderson’s company, Access Sciences Corporation.
There are many resources and programs in Houston specifically tailored to women business owners.
The Greater Houston Partnership offers the Executive Women’s Partnership Committee and the Emerging Women Leaders program. Both provide executive women an opportunity to address business issues and interests, learn from each other and exchange ideas. The Partnership website, www.houston.org, has more information.
Another resource in Houston is the Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance. The WBEA is committed to increasing business opportunities for woman owned businesses and corporate members through education, programs, and professional networking. You can find the group online at www.wbea-texas.org
