The Commonwealth Institute South Florida (TCI) is pleased to announce that you have been selected as one of the Top 50 Women-Led Business Leaders in Florida. The list was compiled as a result of your participation in a recent study conducted by Kaufman Rossin that looked at the characteristics of woman leaders and the businesses they lead.
Women-led businesses are a growth engine in the American economy, and Florida – particularly Miami – is one of the leading markets for this growth. According to a recent study based on U.S. census data, there are nearly 9.1 million women-owned businesses in the nation, generating over $1.4 trillion in revenues and employing 7.9 million workers. The number of women-owned enterprises is increasing faster than the national average. Florida has 564,400 businesses owned by women, which makes us #4 in the nation; Miami ranks fourth among metro areas, with 242,600 women-owned firms.
