About Us

The Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) is a non-profit, community operated and funded initiative hosted at Saint Mary's College. WEI empowers women entreprenurs and business women through personal and professional development, the SPARK program, Renaissance Executive Forums for women, and workshops and seminars.


The Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative mission is to educate the heart and mind of women and to cultivate their entrepreneurial capacity with a combination of personal eduation, business training, and ongoing professional mentoring to enhance their quality of life. 


The vision of WEI is to: support women entrepreneurs and increase their opportunities for success; provide effective, real-world learning experiences and opportunities for small business/entrepreneurship to Saint Mary's College students; deliver a sustainable entrepreneurship education program for women that can also serve as a model for similar efforts in other communities.
