Making Success Possible For Women Entrepreneurs

Black women are entering entrepreneurship at rates that have not been seen before. Corporate America as well as government and philanthropic entities have taken note of this trend, and there is more support available for women founders than before.

Chicago can be the city that leads this conversation and innovates solutions that make success possible for even more women entrepreneurs."
