Women are starting small businesses at a higher rate than men, and their businesses are generating jobs and business revenues above the national average. Supporting female entrepreneurs, especially women of color, has the potential to unlock tremendous growth for their communities. These businesses also continue to be an immovable force in the community, using their voices to heal, educate, empower others and activate change.
