The business world has been forever dominated by man, and frankly (or should we say “Francisly”), it still is. However, women aren’t backing down or shying away from all the responsibilities of say, running their own company. Between 2007 and 2013, the number of women-owned companies in the U.S. increased by an incredible 59%1. It is estimated that there are more than 8.6 million U.S. businesses owned by women2, and Nelson Brothers and Strom is proud to be one of those companies!
So where does a woman-owned company stand the best chance in America? Are there certain cities that offer a better “climate” than others? Forbes decided to look into that very question and create a list of the “10 best cities for Women-Owned Companies”. What’s even more exciting is that Racine, WI (Nelson Brothers and Strom’s stomping grounds) is #4 on the list! Read here to see the full article from Forbes.
