Utah women business owners rank higher for growth in number of businesses, revenue, and employees than most other states. That’s because of the support of thoughtful shoppers who use their dollars to improve our communities, not support giant corporations.
Our vision is to make sure that any woman who wants to own a business has no barriers in front of her. We advocate for women business owners and make sure they have the tools they need to start and succeed in growing their businesses.
