The United States celebrates Thanksgiving this Thursday and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight all the many successes of women entrepreneurs worldwide. We already know through our work at wegg® that global women entrepreneurs are a force to be reckoned with.
Women entrepreneurs are thriving, achieving, going global, investing, competing, resilient, high spirited, and helping one another advance at a pace like we’ve never seen before. They are drivers of incredible economic global growth, creators of jobs, and builders of strong and competitive businesses. They have also learned the importance of peer groups. Anyone who has ever experienced a good peer group knows the power of them – together, we are stronger, versus operating all alone in a vacuum.
Please take a moment to check out just a few of wegg’s women’s success stories as well as some insights about their accomplishments, progress, and recognition through our many wegg programs. Every program we host tells a story of an accomplished woman business owner who helps others in their global expansion journey.
We’re thankful for each and every one of you, as you join us in recognizing and empowering women every day. Keep on growing global! Make your mark in the world. The best is yet to come.
