Start Your Business

You don’t need a business degree to become a business owner. If you have an idea and ambition, we can work with that.

The Center For Women & Enterprise (CWE) offers affordable, comprehensive courses on starting and growing your business while encouraging collaboration with other aspiring and established entrepreneurs. Our curriculum gives you the skills to minimize risk as you prepare for success.

The Basics and Beyond

CWE offers a range of programs to help you navigate the world of business ownership.  Start with an Is Entrepreneurship Right for You? workshop to determine if business ownership is right for you and learn about CWE's classes, services and approach.
