NYT option 3Back in December of 2013, we first announced our partnership with The New York Times. On a regular basis, our videos and articles on inspiring female entrepreneurs have been published in the Times’ small-business section.

We are pleased to share the professional and personal stories of women business owners with the Times’ broad audience. Too often, the tales of entrepreneurial women go unnoticed by mainstream media; yet as a group, female business owners are making a real difference in their communities and contributing to the global economy. By telling their stories, we hope to provide role models to other women who are pursuing entrepreneurial dreams.

To see the videos and articles that have been shared by the Times (as they appear on our site), look below:
