Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence, the leading national not-for-profit provider of resources, business education, and community support for women entrepreneurs, will present its 2012 Leadership Institute on August 1-2, 2012, at the Diana Center at Barnard Collage in New York City.
This event is designed to give established women business owners an additional edge in growing their businesses to the next level of success. Whether they are looking to grow to the $250,000 revenue threshold or reach the $10,000,000, Count Me In has assembled a roster of the nation’s leading small business experts to provide education and insights needed to help women entrepreneurs find and maintain a steady growth track.
According to 2012 US Census statistics, while women-owned businesses represented nearly 50% of privately held companies only 1.8% of their businesses reported more than $1 million in revenue compared to 6% of men-owned firms. Since it’s inception, Count Me In has mobilized a vibrant community of women business owners ready to break that trend. Offering a proven mix of the “Three Cs” – Confidence, professional Coaching and the support of a strong Community – Count Me In programs have helped thousands of women business owners take control of their potential for success, even in the most challenging economic climates and industries. Since 2005, Count Me In programs have yielded more than $200+ million in revenues for participating woman-owned businesses, created hundreds of new jobs and helped women entrepreneurs turn their ideas into million dollar enterprises.
