Empowering Women Entrepreneurs

Sunday, March 13
10:00AM - 11:00AM

Women-owned businesses are on the rise and the numbers don’t lie. In 2014, more than 9.1 million US firms are owned by women, employing nearly 7.9 million people, and generating $1.4 trillion in sales. By breaking through the proverbial glass ceilings, millions of women-business owners contribute to the changing the face and pace of the economic state in the United States.

Please join LaChristian Taylor, Karla Palma and Brad Napp of NFIB as they discuss Governor Gregg Abbott’s initiative to make Texas #1 for women-owned businesses, the challenges and victories of small business ownership in Texas and what it means to be a woman small business owner in the tech industry.
