Woman-Owned Businesses Are Taking Off in the District of Columbia
You probably remember the old days of business: dinners with clients, endless phone conversations, and meetings with partners and higher-ups that could make or break the company. Now it seems that most of your business is conducted over email, too much emphasis is placed on what your website looks like, and there are far more women in attendance at those meetings than ever before.
Research shows that those changes in the profession may actually be related. The District of Columbia currently has one of the fastest-growing areas in the number, employment, and revenues of women-owned companies, making modern business more about what you are willing to do, rather than what you have done before.
So Why Is it So Popular to Do Business With Women-Owned Companies?
- Women have a large presence on the web. Women have been more willing to embrace new media practices such a social networking sites and adaptive business technologies. By cultivating a strong online presence, women have been able to build their businesses from home, contact likely investors, and secure a faster return on investment.
