As of 2015, there were roughly 9.5 million businesses owned and run by women in the Unites States alone. To put that number into perspective, businesses owned and run by women are generating nearly $1.5 trillion annually, and providing jobs to 7.9 million people. Perhaps the most staggering part of these statistics is that over the past decade alone, the number of women-owned businesses increased by over 50 percent, and private firms owned by women increased by almost 75 percent – and there is no sign of the trend slowing down.
