Supporting Women Entrepreneurs is critical to economic development in the United States. Diverse businesses collectively fuel our economy by providing innovative products, services and solutions.
American Express OPEN has developed a series of infographics rich with detail conveying the impact of Women-Owned businesses. Entrepreneur.com featured the first infographic in the series. American Express OPEN’s campaign is called #POWERINGTOMORROW. The sharp mission statement for the campaign is: American Express OPEN salutes, celebrates and wants to help fuel the future of women business owners.
Women entrepreneurs are the fastest-growing group of small-business owners. Women own nearly a third of all businesses (29 percent), but they bring in only 4 percent of all U.S. revenue and 6 percent of all U.S. jobs, according to the second annual The State of Women-Owned Businesses report from American Express OPEN. That means there’s a big opportunity for growth.
