Resource Inventory for Growth-Aspiring Women Entrepreneurs

Download Research Report

Women business owners with growth aspirations can contribute significantly to economic growth in the United States, but women are currently under-represented among large firms with $1 million or more in revenue. To improve access to resources required for growth, the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) created a searchable repository of 196 premiere, growth-oriented programs.

The repository was developed by identifying a catalogue of resource keywords (such as business accelerators and export assistance) and culling a list of such resources from entrepreneur-focused websites and publications. The resources were coded for goodness-of-fit indicators and analyzed in the aggregate to describe the scope of the inventory and potential gaps in programs available to women entrepreneurs through the searchable online repository, “Grow Her Business: A Resource from Start-up to Scale-up.”
