Women in Business Roundtable – Angel Crockett, USWCC Emerging Star Award Winner

The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce Analysis of Small Businesses by Gender, Ethnicity, Industry & Region derived from the 2012 U.S. Census Survey of Business Owners, was reported in the Wake-Up Call Report, and found a number obstacles to growth facing women business owners which dramatically impact business revenues and profits. And these struggles translate into massive opportunity losses for business owners, their employees, families and communities.

The statistics show:

  • Women own 9.9 million U.S. firms representing 35.76% of all U.S. firms
  • Women-owned firms produce only 4.23% of all U.S. revenues.
  • The failure of women-owned firms to produce revenues commensurate with our male counterparts creates an annual opportunity loss of over $10 trillion dollars.
  • 70% of women-owned firms have annual receipts of less than $25,000.
  • Only 10% of women-owned firms have employees

And for women of color, the number are far worse!

As we continue to address some of these issues, we are announcing the 2017 Women in Business Roundtable Web Series. This forum for discussion on business growth will provide women with the ability to learn from those who have overcome obstacles to grow their firms.

Join us on the second Tuesday each month at 1:30pm Eastern to hear from 2017 USWCC Women Contractor Award Winners. This interview series will highlight the struggles and successes of each Award Winner which ultimately lead to her business growth.
