Empowering Women of Color Entrepreneurs

There has never been a better time to invest in female entrepreneurs.

Women of Color have great potential to succeed in business, but very frequently do not have access to the resources needed to grow their business.

BUSINESS OWNERSHIP GROWTH

Among women, black women’s business ownership is growing the fastest. Between 1997 – 2015, the number of businesses owned by African American women grew 322%..

CAPITAL INVESTMENT

Only .2% of women of color entrepreneurs receive venture capital funding.

WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES

8 out of 10 new women-owned businesses launched since 2007 were started by a non-white woman.

COMPANY PERFORMANCE

Female-led companies that receive venture funding have been found to outperform their male peers by as much as 63%.
