StartUp America, the Council on Women and Girls and the White House Business Council have put together an interactive tool to introduce you to some of the women entrepreneurs who are helping our country succeed. Some of these small business owners are on the cutting edge of social media, advanced manufacturing andbiotechnology.
As their stories make clear, women small business owners are an essential part of our economy. Forty years ago, women owned just 5 percent of all small businesses. Today, women own 30 percent, a total of 7.8 million companies generating $1.2 trillion a year in sales.
America’s entrepreneurs are at the heart of our country’s basic promise: That no matter who you are, or where you come from, you can make it if you try. I hope you enjoy this timeline that shows how women small business owners are helping to preserve that promise, and create an economy built to last.
