ABSTRACT
This article describes the advantages and benefits of university-based women entrepreneur centers and argues for the establishment of more such centers by universities interested in advancing women-owned businesses. Based on extensive research on women business owners and firsthand experience with two such university-based centers in the United States, the author describes their several advantages in meeting the distinctive needs of women as entrepreneurs and learners. Providing evidence and examples of 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.
