Description The objective of this research was to characterize the training in companies led by women and determine if there is a relationship with the characteristics of the company and the businesswoman. A structured direct questionnaire was applied to a sample of 272 voluntary businesswomen from Mexico City. The main findings from this exploratory study show that most women entrepreneurs consider training important; nevertheless only half have been trained, the average annual training hours being 45. In addition, only one third have implemented training programs for their employees, and the training topics have been mainly in operational or production areas. It was also found a significant relationship between some characteristics of companies and entrepreneurs and training
