Imagine if women-owned businesses were connected across the nation or even around the globe. How much power would such a network give women? And how much easier would it be to support and empower female entrepreneurs?
Our official website launching today in celebration of International Women’s Day, will help bring this to reality. WomenOwnedBiz.org, a free comprehensive online directory founded and based in Rochester, New York, is helping female entrepreneurs around the world connect with, support, and empower one another. Through the membership of the International Association of Women, this outreach is being extended worldwide.
“We are in the midst of an important women’s movement, and part of the shift must include flexing our economic muscles,” says Karin Klock, Founder & CEO. “Making a product, providing a service, securing financing, hiring employees – everything that goes into running a business takes time, attention and money. As a result, the time and expense of promotion and marketing can often get sidelined or feel so overwhelming, it discourages women from starting or expanding their business. The website is designed to address these concerns and the site has been very well received with connections growing at a rapid pace.”
The professionally designed, user-friendly website helps to promote and establish connections between women-owned businesses of all types. Visitors to the site can browse by category, including business and professional services, medical, arts, entertainment, education, and many others. Any women-owned business may register (certification not required), and the site also offers an opportunity for corporate sponsors to get involved. Listing in our directory will provide you with free marketing, advertising and promotion of your business.
“At womenownedbiz.org, we are continually inspired by the people we meet every day. To hear what motivates them, why they do what they do, and to be able to support their businesses is very gratifying.” To register your business or support the other businesses in the directory, visit WomenOwnedBiz.org and become part of our worldwide community today.
