There's exciting things happening in the world of women entrepreneurs. Women are now the dominant force in small business ownership and succeeding in industries that were once taboo for women.
By studying industries, sales trends, and other important statistics, women are not only starting businesses, they are staying in business.
As of 2016, it is estimated that there are now 11.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, employing nearly 9 million people and generating over $1.6 trillion in revenues.
This event will encourage women to Elevate and Excel in their businesses in 2017.
As you know Metro Atlanta ranks #5, GA ranks #2 in growth in number of women-owned firms and #7 in growth in economic clout of women-owned firms. Between 2007 and 2016, the number of women-owned firms increased by 45%, compared to just a 9% increase among all businesses.
This event will benefit the BWEP-Business Women Empowerment Project, Inc. Scholarship Fund.
