According to the NY Post, New York Women are owning the business world.
“New York City’s women can lean in with the best of them when it comes to running a business.
With everything from small florists to high-tech hubs, the New York City metro area has an estimated 876,300 women-owned firms, employing 657,600 workers (excluding owners), with estimated sales this year of $140 billion.
Since 2002, sales at women-owned operations have grown by 48 percent, and the total number of firms by nearly 45 percent.”
