As the country’s economy continues to grow, so do minority women-owned businesses which are contributing new jobs at a staggering pace. In fact, a recent report revealed that of new jobs created between 2007 and 2012, minority-owned businesses added 72 percent of these jobs, while businesses that are white-owned lost nearly 2 million jobs.
A recent article by CCTV America highlights not only the impressive growth of minority-owned businesses nationwide, but specifically the depth of this movement in Colorado with women leading the charge. The article titled “Minority Women-Owned Businesses Growing Throughout US” showcases Colorado entrepreneurs that are redefining what it means to be a woman business owner.
