5 Facts About the Success of Women-Owned Businesses


87% of women business owners are optimistic about the economic outlooks for their businesses this year, which is a 12% increase over 2013 findings, according to the 2014 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report released by the National Association of Women Business Owners.  Judging by these five statistics the report produced, they have good reason to be optimistic.


1. There are a lot of women-owned businesses and they employ a lot of people. 10.1 million firms are owned by women (50% or more), employing more than 13 million people, and generating $1.9 trillion in sales as of 2008.

2. A lot of those businesses are majority owned by women. Three quarters of all women-owned businesses are majority owned by women (51% or more), for a total of 7.2 million firms, employing 7.3 million people, and generating $1.1 trillion in sales.


3. They are a huge portion of privately held businesses in the United States.  Women-owned firms (50% or more) account for 40% of all privately held firms.

4. Women-owned businesses bring in a lot of revenue. One in five firms with revenue of $1 million or more is woman-owned.


5. Businesses owned by women are gaining on those owned by men. 3% of all women-owned firms have revenues of $1 million or more compared with 6% of men-owned firms.
