Data from this report can be used to support an increase in entrepreneurial, minority and women-owned certification training programs, access to capital programs and advocacy efforts. Importantly, the numbers can be used by the media to provide context in stories about women entrepreneurs. These stories provide role models to lead the way and encourage other ambitious women to take the plunge by providing roadmaps and expert guides that show why and how women are making a positive impact. The combined wisdom and individual stories of women who have broken barriers will become the basis for educating, motivating, and inspiring other women.
