Women Entrepreneurship Week 2018

Women Entrepreneurship Week is a global movement to promote gender equity and equal opportunity for women by developing their entrepreneurial skill set and connecting them with other talented women and mentors. At Texas State University this fall, we hosted both a Speaker Series, which featured Kerry Rupp, General Partner with True Wealth Ventures, as our keynote speaker, and an Innovation Program, which paired first time founders with one-on-one mentorship to accelerate the growth of their small businesses and startups.
