High Octane Entrepreneurial Power

She says, "The Women's Small Business Expo is all about high-octane entrepreneurial power. Only 20% of all businesses succeed. We want to give women the edge to be part of that 20%."

Women Experts from Australia

Rachael Bermingham, one of the top-selling authors in Australia and Carren Smith, CEO of Quantum Leadership Group in Australia, will reveal powerful sales and marketing strategies for women.

Charitable Giving

The Expo also encourages the importance of giving back to society. It donates part of the proceeds to Junior Achievement to teach kids entrepreneurship. Corporate sponsors who support women business owners include Wells Fargo, Epson, Fed Ex, and American Airlines.

Women Business Revolution

In 2011, women have the majority of wealth in America. Women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men and they make or influence over 85% of all purchases. Currently there are over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employing 19.1 million people and generating $2.5 trillion in sales according to the Center for Women's Business Research.

Los Angeles is now the city with the most women entrepreneurs. Today's economy is actually sparking the rise in women-owned businesses. Women are starting businesses after being downsized or laid off. Empowerment events like Women's Small Business Expo are helping women create powerful connections, learn about entrepreneurship and create their dream businesses.
