FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Presently, women-owned companies in the U.S. account for 16% of all jobs, and women entrepreneurs will create 5.0 to 5.5 million new jobs across the U.S. by 2018. The average U.S. household, with women at the helm, owns approximately 20 consumer electronic devices requiring setup, troubleshooting and the occasional tech support to ensure they function properly. SupportSquad not only offers individual tech support but also provides assistance for small business solutions.
