May 14, 2019, Washington, DC, /3BL Media/ - CEO and Co-Founder of WEConnect International, Elizabeth A. Vazquez, today announced that WEConnect International’s Council on Scaling Women-Owned Businesses will generate pioneering research on how to connect two critical challenges to growth faced by micro, small, and medium enterprises owned by women—access to capital and access to markets.
Dell’s partnerships with small, woman-owned and minority-owned businesses help these suppliers create an economic ripple effect throughout their own supply chains and communities.
When World Wide Technology (WWT) first started reselling Dell computers in 1990, the minority-owned company had just seven employees in St. Louis. Over the past three decades, WWT has earned more and more of Dell’s business, becoming one of our biggest strategic partners in both supply chain management and channel sales. Today WWT is a global technology solution provider with $10.4 billion in annual revenue and more than 4,600 employees.
The number of U.S. women-owned businesses (WOB) is increasing dramatically, yet they continue to contribute the same percentage to domestic business revenues as they did 20 years ago — about 4% of all revenue — in spite of the number of WOB growing 114% compared to 44% for all businesses in the same period. The country had an estimated 11.6 million WOB in 2017, according to American Express OPEN, with $1.7 trillion in revenue.
