Getting Over Heartbreak Hill - Must-Read Report For Business Women

By January 30, 2013

Follow me on:

When comparing the growth in number of women-owned firms with those of their peers, women-owned firms matched or exceeded growth rates up until the 100-employee threshold or the million-dollar revenue mark in what was termed the "Heartbreak Hill" of the entrepreneurial marathon, according to the State of Women-Owned Business Report.

So what happens to these women business owners after they hit the $1 million mark?

Thanks to never before released U.S. Census data we can now see what happens after "Heartbreak Hill." The new American Express OPEN-commissioned report, Growing Under the Radar, provides exclusive analysis, that shows growth in women-owned businesses with more than $10 million in revenues is 47% higher than among all $10 million + firms. 13% of all $1 million + firms have $10 million + in sales, as do 8% of million-dollar women-owned businesses. The report analyzes the 2% of women-owned firms that have surpassed the million-dollar revenue level.

An exciting excerpt from the report:

"Over the past decade, the growth in the number of women-owned firms with $10 million or more in revenues has increased by 56.6%, a rate that far surpasses that of all women-owned firms, all million-dollar womenowned firms AND all $10 million+ businesses."

Thanks to American Express OPEN for sharing the above with Women in Business!

Nice post. I understand something extra challenging on several blogs everyday. It is going to generally be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice somewhat some thing from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some with the content on my blog no matter whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
