A Place of Her Own: The Case for University-Based Centers for Women Entrepreneurs
Riebe, Mary
Journal of Education for Business, v87 n4 p241-246 2012
The author describes the benefits of university-based women entrepreneur centers as an educational and outreach strategy and argues for their establishment and support by universities interested in educating women entrepreneurs and advancing women-owned businesses. Based on extensive research on women business owners and firsthand experience with two such U.S. university-based centers, the author describes their several advantages in meeting the distinctive needs of women as entrepreneurs and learners. Providing examples of and rationales for the effectiveness of these programs, the author also makes a case for their potential economic development benefits for the larger economy and community and contributions to their sponsoring universities.
