What's Happening With Women-Owned Businesses?

Women are increasingly harnessing their entrepreneurial spirit and it is critical to encourage and support this behavior, eliminate obstacles, and facilitate growth of their businesses. Unlocking the potential of women-owned businesses represents a powerful opportunity for economic growth.  These are words to describe the state of women-owned businesses from American Express, Ventureneer and CoreWoman.

The 2018 State of Women-Owned Businesses report, commissioned and provided by American Express, examines the periods 2007, 2012, 2017 and 2018, looking at trends in the number of firms, employment, and revenue by various groupings.
This report focuses on women-owned businesses, which are defined as businesses that are at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by one or more females. Over the past 46 years, women of all ages have become business owners in droves - from baby boomers and Gen Xers to millennials and younger generations.
Explore the report's findings.  See how you fit in on the grand scheme of things. Oh, and important detail:  the report was prepared for American Express by Ventureneer with the support of CoreWoman.
