NWBC As Key Resource To Women Veteran Entrepreneurs

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Women's Business Council takes honor in commemorating Veterans Day by highlighting key findings about women veteran business owners and serving as a resource for women veterans during the 2013 Women Veterans Entrepreneur Conference hosted by Count Me In. Count Me In is a national not-for-profit provider of resources, business education, and community support for women entrepreneurs.

"It is our mission to provide sound research to expand and improve opportunities for women-owned businesses to thrive," said NWBC Chair Carla Harris. The National Women Business Council's research serves as a resource for women entrepreneurs to advance by providing a platform to drive policy initiatives and private sector innovations.

As we honor Veterans Day, we pay special tribute to woman veteran entrepreneurs. Our latest internal analysis indicates women veterans are making astonishing strides in business ownership."

Based on the most recent Census data, there are almost 2.5 million veteran-owned firms in the US, comprising more than 9 percent of all firms. Of these firms, four percent—nearly 100,000—are women-owned, a notable accomplishment for women veterans considering women veterans made up only 7% of veterans during the time the data was collected.

The National Women's Business Council (NWBC) is a non-partisan federal advisory council created to serve as an independent source of advice and counsel to the President, Congress, and the U.S. Small Business Administration on economic issues of importance to women business owners. The Council is the government's only independent voice for women entrepreneurs. Members are prominent women business owners and leaders of women's business organizations. NWBC is composed of 15 members who are appointed to three-year terms.
