Move over gents there’s a new leader in town. According to research conducted by – The Centre for Women’s Business – 10.1 Million firms are owned by women – employing more than 13 Million people. The total number of sales generated by firms owned by women topped 1.1 Trillion dollars back in 2008. (These are American numbers but women are outpacing men in starting small businesses here in Canada as well)
