Women Who Export Earn More, Employ More and Are More Productive
Our mission with Women Entrepreneurs GROW Global (WEGG) is to educate women business owners and entrepreneurs worldwide on how to go global so they can run healthier businesses and create a new future for themselves, their families and their community. We are thrilled that The White House is also working to enable women business owners to export their products:
It is important for women-owned businesses and firms to be able to export their products. Why? Studies have found that women-owned firms that export not only earn more, but also employ more people and are, on average, more productive than women-owned firms that do not. In addition, women-owned businesses that export their goods and services average $14.5 million in receipts, compared to just $117,036 for women-owned businesses that do not export. Clearly, exporting has very real advantages. – Source: Unlocking Export Opportunities for Women-Owned Businesses | The White House
