Student Organization: Society of Student Entrepreneurs

The Society of Student Entrepreneurs is a student-led organization sponsored by the Center for Women Entrepreneurs with the focus of igniting the entrepreneurial spirit campus-wide (Denton, Dallas, Houston) at Texas Woman’s University.

How do I know if the Society of Student Entrepreneurs is for me?

  1. Do you want to learn more about entrepreneurship and what it takes to be an entrepreneur?
  2. Maybe you already have a business idea but you are curious about what to do next
  3. Or maybe you are already working that side hustle and you want to learn how to grow your business and the skills you need to do it.

If you said yes to any of those, then this organization is for you!

Whether we meet in person or online we are endeavoring to have a robust school year filled with a variety of interactive and engaging opportunities in entrepreneurship and leadership development. (All programs and events will be live stream or online.) 

Undergraduates and graduates here at Texas Woman’s University who are interested in exploring more about entrepreneurship are welcome to join.
