Texas: Governor Abbott Announces Governor’s Small Business Summit In Fredericksburg

Honoring Women ~ The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has announced that the 2023 Governor's Small Business Summit will be held in Fredericksburg on Thursday, September 21. The event will feature special guest First Lady Cecilia Abbott and aims to help women-owned small businesses and aspiring female entrepreneurs reach new heights in their business journey by connecting them with the resources and information needed to start, strengthen, and grow a business.

Governor Abbott said: "Whether you're starting a new business or expanding an existing enterprise, women business owners are looking for the same opportunities as all entrepreneurs: more access to capital, fewer barriers to entry, and greater freedom to grow. Texas offers more of these growth opportunities for women entrepreneurs than any other state. As a result, Texas is home to 1.25 million women business owners. Working with all of our entrepreneurs and small business owners and ensuring they have the knowledge and tools needed to succeed, we will build an even brighter Texas of tomorrow."

First Lady Cecilia Abbott added: "In Texas, we believe in the unlimited potential of women. We know that when women invest in themselves, in their businesses, and in their communities, they encourage young girls to believe in themselves and they inspire change in others. I am delighted to be a part of this Small Business Summit and proud of the incredible work of the Governor's Office of Economic Development and Tourism and the Governor's Commission for Women as we continue to promote small businesses and women business owners in Texas."
