MIAMI, FL, May 18, 2017 – The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) honored 50 Top Women-Led Businesses from the state of Florida at a luncheon held today at Jungle Island. TCI is a non-profit organization whose mission is to advance businesswomen in leadership positions in Florida and Massachusetts; they partnered with Kaufman Rossin to administer and analyze the 2017 Women-Led Businesses Survey. The survey gathers information about women-led businesses in the state, identifying trends and common concerns.
TCI reports, "National data shows that women-owned businesses are strong and getting stronger." According to the 2016 State of Women-Owned Businesses report commissioned by American Express Open, they have grown faster in number, employment and revenue than businesses as a whole since the Great Recession. Of the women surveyed, more than 58% reported their businesses grew in 2016 and 77.5% expect the same in 2017.
