The number of women-owned businesses in the US has increased by 114% over the past 20 years. Yet while entrepreneurship seems to offer greater autonomy and flexibility, it also contributes to economic insecurity.
In a Harvard Business Review article, Aarons-Mele writes that "the economic impact of most women's small businesses may not be what's best for women, their families or the economy in the long run." She further states that "women-owned businesses are disproportionately in industries where the median receipts are less than $225,000 (and businesses with receipts less than $100,000 are more likely to fail)."
H+S is here to change the game.
H+S is on a mission to get more women past this barrier. We are here to see women’s businesses rise above the $100,000 mark and we are here to grow WITH you as a women-owned and operated enterprise ourselves.
We are in this game to win it and we can’t do it without you LEVELING UP with us!
The H+S audience is made up of professionals at the intersection of entrepreneurship, media, marketing and technology across a range of industries including marketing, advertising, communications, media, retail, education, technology and entertainment.
