This month, in support of women-owned businesses, we can lend our support. Why?
- Women-owned businesses represent 42% of all US businesses
- Women-owned businesses in the US generate as much as $1.8 trillion a year
- Women-owned businesses employ over 9 million of the US workforce

Women-owned businesses are not excluded.
