Campaign Media Kit
October is National Women’s Small Business Month, a time to celebrate the growth and accomplishments of women-owned small businesses and the vital role they play in our economy. This October, WBENC is honoring National Women’s Small Business Month with a campaign to raise awareness for why, where, and how to #BuyWomenOwned and support women-owned small businesses.
There are 12.9 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., representing 42 percent of all businesses. These businesses collectively employ 9.4 million people and generate $1.9 trillion in revenue. While that’s a sizeable impact, these same companies account for just 8% of the total private sector workforce and 4.3% of the total private sector revenues. With more support and increased access to opportunities and capital, women-owned businesses are poised to make a significant impact on the overall economy.
During National Women’s Small Business Month, our goal is to celebrate the growth and accomplishments of women-owned businesses and the vital role they play in our economy.
