invest in women, invest in America
The Invest in Women Entrepreneurs Initiative wants every woman entrepreneur to have the resources she needs to start and grow her business and build wealth.
There are more than eleven million women-owned businesses operating in the US. The US Small Business Administration's Office of Women's Business Ownership spends just $17 million on 100 Women's Business Centers (WBCs) that served 145,000 women in 2016. Imagine if we increased support fivefold - we could reach 500,000 women entrepreneurs and generate 1.2 million jobs and $60 billion in economic value for local communities.
Why invest in women entrepreneurs? Because we believe it's the best way to create wealth in households, communities, and the US economy.
The Invest in Women Entrepreneurs Initiative seeks to create wealth for women. Our mission is to significantly increase resources that support the growth of women-owned businesses by leveraging private, corporate, and government grants and capital. Through partnerships with strong advocates like the American Sustainable Business Council, we are working together to fuel the success of women business owners.
Women entrepreneurs who get support through coaching, capital, and connections build strong, sustainable businesses that create financial security and fuel our economy.
