A little over 30 years ago, there were around 4 million businesses owned by women. As of 2018, there were over 11 million! That number is only continuing to rise as more females feel empowered and inspired to start their own businesses! And what better way to find inspirational female entrepreneurs and connect with them than through a tool we use every day: social media.
