Our struggle to grow our businesses helps us to develop the muscle that we need to sustain our businesses. Together we can provide a powerful force and great resources to set up co-op opportunities with banks, corporations, and policymakers. As a group, we have the power to demand and command respect and to set a new standard locally, statewide and even nationwide, on behalf of African American women business owners.
According to the Center for Women's Business Research, there were an estimated 414, 472 majority-owned, privately held firms owned by African American women in the U.S., employing nearly 254,000 people and generating 19.5 billion in sales. And African American women businesses are pacing as the fastest growing small business segment in the country.
We are well on our way to tapping into a network that has been left sitting dormant for years and we plan to continue to pursue more opportunities for African American women business owners for years to come.
