ErinAndrewSBAIn honor of Women’s History Month, SBA will host a Twitter chat to help women entrepreneurs and small business owners start and grow a business. Today, women are starting businesses at a higher rate than ever before and are among the fastest-growing businesses in America. They also generate $1.2 trillion in revenues and employ 7.6 million people (according to the National Women’s Business Council). However, women continue to face barriers to entry- access to capital, discrimination, language barriers, and balancing life and work. 

SBA along with Microsoft, SCORE,  Maple Street Denim, Marion and Rose's Workshop, National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses, Google, National Women Business Owners Corporation, Square, The UPS Store, Women’s Economic Ventures and Women Impacting Public Policy will provide resources and tips to help women succeed in business. Check out the details below and learn how you can participate.
