February Caffeinated Innovation w/ Innovation Works and WELD Pittsburgh
Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States increasing their businesses 322% since 1997. Pittsburgh has a plethora of black women owned business.

Join Innovation Works and Weld Pittsburgh as we celebrate the African American women Entrepreneurs in our city: their path, their product and their plans for the future.

Did you know… The United States is number one in the world for women entrepreneurs with women owned businesses now representing 36% of all business up from 30% in 2007. Since 2012, women owned businesses have generated $1.4 trillion in receipts alone. On a state level, Pittsburgh has fared well. It was recently listed as #23 of 50 on the Dell Women Entrepreneur City Index as a place that supports high potential women entrepreneurs. However, where do women of color; in particular black women fall on that scale?

According to the 2015 State of Women-Owned Businesses report, 30% of all businesses in the United States are women owned with African American women making up 14%.

So let's dive deeper into this growing entrepreneurial movement and find ways to support the momentum of local black, women entrepreneurs.
