ABOUT US

The Office of Community and Economic Development at Fresno State via its Small Business University program launched the Fresno State Women’s Entrepreneur Center in Fall of 2022. The Women’s Entrepreneur Center was established to fill the gaps in small business technical assistance services to women in the Central Valley.  The Women’s Entrepreneur Center or WE Center as it is known, is designed to assist women across the central valley who want to expand or begin their entrepreneurial careers. The WE Center takes into consideration the challenges of growing a small business and therefore provides the necessary tools to create a reliable foundation in order for a business to grow. The WE Center is staffed by bilingual business specialists who understand how to launch and help expand a business.
