Celebrating Women – Entrepreneurs this August
Starting a small business is not easy, fueling success into the business is also not an easy feat. But small business owners take the risk and in doing so, they play a huge role in job creation, shifting the course of a local economy and making an impact on their communities.
This is why we celebrate the rise of small businesses, and most importantly the rise of women-led small businesses. Experts believe that women-led businesses are significant in easing unemployment, which has unfortunately increased to 29% at the last quarter of 2019. But women entrepreneurs’ soldier on through these hard times and through decades’ long challenges such as gender disparities, cultural, social, and economic hindrances.
Many are putting in hard work without the assistance or support. As women’s month draws to a close, we’re honouring our women-entrepreneur clients – who are pioneering change in their own lives, their employees’ lives, their clients’ lives and overall communities.
