There are over 500,000 women-owned businesses in New York, and there are many people who want to support these business owners, but this task can be difficult without a comprehensive local business directory
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
Woman Owned NY (WomanOwnedNewYork.com) was created to increase the visibility of local women-owned businesses in New York, including the 5 boroughs, Long Island, and upstate New York, and to encourage local collaboration and support.
"There are over 500,000 women-owned businesses in New York, and there are many people who want to support these business owners, but this task can be difficult without a comprehensive local business directory," says website owner, Veronique Topping Knight. "The purpose of the Woman Owned NY website is to increase consumers' accessibility to women-owned businesses in New York, and to make it easier for local business owners and their customers to reach and support each other."
The Woman Owned NY Business Directory allows website visitors to find and shop with local women-owned businesses and gives them access to local news, events, coupons, and job listings. Site visitors can also visit the Video Directory Blog to view the latest online videos showcasing local businesses, events, and entrepreneurs.
In the Business Owner Resources section of the website, business owners will find valuable business tools to help them start, manage, and grow their business including Business Articles/Tips, Business Books, Business Assistance and Loan Information, Business Presentations, Website Templates, Free Business Software, and Woman-owned Business Certification information. Business Owners can also make connections, share resources, and form strategic alliances with other local entrepreneurs on the Woman Owned NY Social Network (available at http://network.womanownednewyork.com).
