October is National Women’s Small Business Month, dedicated to celebrating the contributions and successes of our nation’s women small business owners.
The 10 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. hold tremendous value, generating $1.4 trillion in revenue and employing 8.4 million people, according to the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC).
Many of our graduates are women that are small business owners. This month we want to celebrate their hard work and their success.
The potential of women entrepreneurs is inspiring. As a powerful means of wealth creation, entrepreneurship can have life-changing benefits that carry through from one generation to the next. Successful women entrepreneurs are creating better lives for themselves and paving the path for tomorrow’s women business owners.
National Women’s Small Business Month is a great time to remember and raise awareness of the importance of women-owned businesses. Not only can these businesses immensely benefit the economy, but they are also powerful contributors to gender equality and fundamental for the future of our country.
