How women-owned businesses and entrepreneurs are driving power for good

Women’s History Month is upon us, dedicated to recognizing and honoring some of the most influential women and girls. We will undoubtedly see media highlights of female pioneers past and present, as companies highlight the achievements of their female employees and fierce executive leaders.

But it’s also B Corp Month, which recognizes businesses that are audited for their impact on all stakeholders, not just profitability. So make room for another worthy mention: women-owned businesses and female entrepreneurs who strive for social and environmental impact alongside profit.

According to a recent study published by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, in 2021 the overall women’s early-stage entrepreneurial activity (TEA) rate was 15.2% in the United States, up from 13.6% in 2020. Motivating many of these female entrepreneurs was the desire to make a difference – an astonishing 70.5% of those surveyed.
