U.S. Banker Publishes USWCC Op-Ed: What Women-Owned Firms Need Most: Access To Capital

We extend our thanks to the publishers of U.S. Banker for publishing the following op-ed from the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce in their October 2010 Edition, "The 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking."

usbankerExcerpt:  "The hype surrounding the tremendous growth of women-owned businesses continues to overlook the bottom line for measuring the success of all businesses: revenue and profits. Newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that, even though the number of women-owned businesses grew 44 percent between 1997 and 2007, our already small market share, as measured by revenue, declined more than 10 percent, dropping from 4.41 percent in 1997 to 3.95 percent in 2007."
