One in 11 women in the U.S. is now a business owner, according to Rene Jones, president of Heller and Jones and president of the research group’s Philadelphia chapter.
“As business owners, we are an increasingly dynamic part of the economy in every city in the U.S.,” said Jones. “But most of all, this information shows that for women, the dream of entrepreneurship can be a viable reality.”
The results were the latest findings in an ongoing project entitled, “Completing the Picture.” Pitney Bowes Inc., the Philadelphia chapter of the Center for Women’s Business Research and Wells Fargo are underwriting this phase of the project.
