What does it mean to be a certified women-owned business?
Women-owned is an initiative from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and WEConnect International to create a movement of support for women-owned businesses.
Across the globe, women-owned businesses supply an incredible range of products and services. The women-owned logo enables consumers to identify those products and services supplied by women-owned businesses during their shopping experience.
Any storefronts, websites, and product labels bearing the women-owned logo have been certified as being at least 51 percent (more than half) owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council in American and WEConnect International around the world.
How Akorbi Supports a Vital and Growing Movement
Women-owned businesses create a significant portion of economic and business growth. As of January 2017, there were an estimated 11.6 million women-owned businesses in America, collectively employing around 9 million people and generating $1.7 trillion in annual revenue.
Over the past two decades, the number of women-owned businesses has grown 114 percent in the United States. When you understand the overall national growth rate of 44 percent for all businesses, you see the value that women-owned businesses bring to the U.S. economy.
Women reinvest up to 90 percent of their income in their families and communities, compared to 40 percent for men, providing even more resources to local initiatives and local wealth.
