We are pleased to announce the release of our 2014 Annual Report, “Building Bridges: Leveraging Research and Relationships to Impact the Business Climate for Women.” This report is a synthesis of our research and the implications of our findings for the women’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Our research confirms that the full economic participation of women and their success in business can significantly contribute to job growth in this country and is critical to the continued economic recovery. But, they also highlight the disparities and challenges women entrepreneurs face in their business pursuits.

In this report we have identified opportunities and intervention points along with policy recommendations for the Small Business Administration, Congress and the White House that we believe move the dial for women entrepreneurs from potential to success.
