Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs Through Gifting
Female entrepreneurship is on the rise across the world. Globally, one third of high growth businesses are run by women, and the number of female entrepreneurs is continuing to grow. The growth of women owned businesses is especially impressive because women are starting businesses, even in non-enabling environments - meaning policies around childcare, access to capital, and overall support are minimal. Since women make up 85% of consumer spending in the US, it makes sense that women would have the best understanding of purchasing habits, identifying market gaps, and opportunities for new business ideas.
One of the best ways we can contribute to the success of female entrepreneurs is to buy from woman owned businesses. Here’s our list of women owned businesses to purchase from to celebrate Women’s History Month.
