Female Founders on Fire!

 

Let's Celebrate!

 

• 11.6 Million women entrepreneurs in the U.S.

• Over the last decade women have started twice as many businesses as men have

• Women entrepreneurs employ 9 million people and generate $1.7 trillion in revenues

These numbers can double with our help!

 

Let's Fix This!

 

• Fewer than 3% of all women entrepreneurs get to $1M in revenues

• Over the last decade women have started businesses with six times less capital than their male counterparts

• Women-owned businesses are less likely to scale than men-owned businesses
