“The times they are a- changin’.” Women are starting more than 1,200 new businesses a day, up from an average of 740 a day in 2013, according to The 2014 State of Women-Owned Business Report. Four out of 10 new firms are now started by women.
What is not changing is the percent of women who are growing their businesses beyond $1 million. It is one-third the percent of men who make the break-through. As they say, seeing is believing. “Women and girls aren’t seeing enough successful women entrepreneurs in the media, especially women of color,” said Erin Bagwell. She’s changing that by creating a film, Dream, Girl, showcasing 12 women entrepreneurs who are strong, effective, savvy leaders.
