Excerpt from the article:
It’s been a year unlike any other with COVID-19 causing city-wide shutdowns that have crippled small business owners and forced millions to close. The pandemic’s impact has been especially disheartening for women entrepreneurs as the number of female business owners dropped from 5.4 million to 4 million between February and April, according to a study by Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research.
Still, female business owners are resilient, innovative, and trendsetting—even in the midst of a pandemic. They are moving beyond just surviving and reinventing themselves to thrive again. And they’re still passionate about culture, work-life balance, the environment, and making an impact.
