Women’s History Month: Celebrating the Women Entrepreneurs of North Dakota
Center for Technology & Business, North Dakota Women’s Business Center, is celebrating Women’s History Month by recognizing the impact of women owned businesses in North Dakota.
North Dakota Certified Women Owned Businesses are an elite group of entrepreneurs across the state that have qualified for certification based on at least 51% majority ownership by a woman (or women). Certified businesses have undergone a thorough application process and met criteria that acknowledges their ownership and control of the business on a day to day basis.
Women owned businesses are among the fastest growing sector in the small business community and this certainly rings true in North Dakota. North Dakota is among the states with the fastest growth in the number, employment and revenues of women-owned firms. Second only to the District of Columbia and up from number five in 2012, according to the 2013 State of Women-Owned Business Report.
In the same report, nationally, the number of women owned businesses with $10 million or more in revenues was found to have grown by 57% between 2002 and 2012 – a rate 47% faster than all $10 million + businesses. This is a trend worth looking at when it comes to economic impact and which businesses are growing despite the national economy.
