To stimulate and support sustainable economic growth and prosperity for a diverse population of women by providing micro-enterprise businesses with strategies, resources, and a trusted source for information and guidance.
The impact of economic development can only be achieved when there are small businesses and jobs in local communities with a structured and clear path for the support of strategic business success. According to the Small Business Administration, small companies create 1.5 million jobs annually and account for 64% of new jobs created in the United States and generate the majority of jobs in the United States. The focus of Women Empowered for Entrepreneurial Excellence is supporting the acceleration of women entrepreneurs toward the growth and longevity of their business to free standing companies. The multiplier effect that happens when business revenues catalyze more jobs and workforce growth while supporting the financial stability of families, contribute meaningful impact to the economic stability of neighborhoods and communities.
