About the 1,000 Stories Campaign
Women are helping to drive the economic recovery, creating jobs at a time when we need them most.
But the needs of women entrepreneurs are often overlooked by policymakers and their stories are left untold in the media.
Even though women have fewer role models, women-owned businesses in the U.S. are growing faster than the national average. Globally, the number of women starting their own businesses is rising quickly as countries everywhere are realizing the untapped growth potential of women entrepreneurs.
Just think what public validation could do for us and how this could help overcome all sorts of hurdles we face as women, like the funding gap. The fact is that women seeking first-year financing to get a business off the ground receive about 80 percent less capital than men.
JOIN US! SHARE YOUR STORY
That’s why we’re launching 1,000 Stories, a project aimed at understanding the needs of women business owners and giving their stories media exposure. It’s easy to take part. Just share your business story here — we’re interested in businesses from every sector, including social enterprises and even sole proprietorships — and it will appear on our website, with its own link. We’ll use these to find candidates for future blogs and videos (watch our inspiring videos of women entrepreneurs here).
Once we reach our goal of 1,000 stories we’ll analyze our findings and go to the media, lawmakers, and the banking industry so they can create initiatives that work around the needs of women … instead of women having to work around everyone else.
Join us in creating the next story on women. Tell your story here.
