A survey of 1,200 women business owners conducted by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) discovered three interesting trends about female business owners. According to a post on WomenEntrepreneur.com by Eva Gumpel, women business owners are going green, going global and giving back to their communities (dubbed the 3 ‘G’s by Eva).
The survey found that:
- 25% of women business owners are taking their businesses to international markets.
- 71% of women business owners are actively making their companies greener (by changing their products or their company policies).
- 53% of women business owners are giving 1%-5% of their profits to philanthropic causes.
Way to go ladies!
