Examining the Future for Women-Owned Businesses -A Discussion with Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS)
March 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST
There are nearly 13 million women-owned businesses in the United States as of early 2023, but financially and economically many women-owned businesses remain underserved by the traditional financing industry. Policymakers, private companies and advocacy organizations have continued to make efforts to provide expanded access to capital for women-owned businesses. The upcoming Biz2Credit 2023 Women-Owned Business Study shows some of the ways that these efforts are having an effect, and opens up numerous topics for discussion in relation to the future for women-owned companies. This Special Event will give business owners a chance to hear from U.S. Congresswoman Sharice Davids (D-KS), a member of the House Small Business Committee, on how the Federal government and private industry are collaborating to support women business owners during the current period of economic uncertainty and high inflation. The Congresswoman and panelists from the sponsor companies will discuss the success of government initiatives to support small business owners and women entrepreneurs.
