More women are leaving the “traditional” workforce to go into business for themselves. It is estimated that women own 11.3 million businesses in the U.S. or about 36 percent.

So what would our economy look like if women as consumers made more of an effort to support other women-owned businesses?

Our panel will address some of the internal and external challenges Women Entreprenuers face, as well as how women can support women with their pocketbooks.

If you are a business owner, come with cards to pass out! And come ready to learn about the woman-owned businesses right in your back yard that you can support.

The Panel includes:

Sam Letscher, Founder, Bossy Chicago

While a student at Northwestern University, Sam and her friend Isabel Benatar founded Bossy Chicago, a website that lists and features women-owned businesses in Chicago. Sam is passionate about women supporting women-owned businesses.
