CNBC just announced that Texas has been named America’s top state for business in 2018! Women-owned businesses are growing 2.5 times faster than the national average and Governor Abbott has charged the Women’s Commission with helping Texas become the #1 state for women-led businesses. Join us for a panel discussion on how to start a business in Texas. Our panel of experts are successful Texas female business owners and executives who will share why Texas is the best state to start a business and will give advice to help you get started.
