Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative
The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative offers support for women at UF through activities designed to empower and equip them to develop effective leadership skills and become successful entrepreneurs. In the U.S., women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men, and at the Entrepreneurship Center we provide additional female-focused support for increased success in those efforts. The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative connects the students with their peers and successful female leaders to foster a community of women in entrepreneurship where they benefit through mentoring, network building, start-up and career advice, internships, and lots of inspiration!
