Women@Austin is an organization creating trusted connections that advance and empower successful women entrepreneurs. Our mission is to accelerate women entrepreneurs in Central Texas so that they can have greater economic and community impact – a goal we’re actively working towards by equipping women entrepreneurs with what they need to be successful.
Founded in 2014, Women@Austin was created after several of Austin’s most experienced female entrepreneurs and executives came together and decided they wanted to do something proactive to bolster women’s ratios in Austin business – to make Austin the most accessible, nurturing place for women-led businesses in the country.
Focal to this mission are our five pillars – community, knowledge, mentoring, access to capital, and outside collaboration – which we’re using to build a mission-driven community dedicated to accelerating high-growth women entrepreneurs.
