NWBC Celebrates Women’s History Month

WASHINTON, D.C., March 3, 2019 – Join the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) in celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day.

Women-owned businesses are driving economic growth in the United States. They represent 42% of all businesses — nearly 13 million — employing 9.4 million workers and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion. Over the past five years, the annual growth rate in the number of women-owned firms has been more than double that of all businesses.

On March 19, 2020, NWBC will partner with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to showcase how women-owned businesses have grown their revenues by selling overseas. By joining WEBINAR: Take Your Business Global, you’ll learn how SBA can help you participate in the $45 trillion global trade economy. NWBC will share the unique issues faced by women exporters and the creative solutions they are using to find success.

NWBC’s #WebinarWednesday is a multi-series webinar that connects women entrepreneurs and business owners to key advocates, experts, and useful resources in order to bolster their knowledge and skills and elevate their entrepreneurial potential. At NWBC, we continue to prioritize this challenge and strive to make inroads for women-owned businesses in starting and growing their business. 

Thursday, March 19th at 2:00pm (EST)
