our visionImagine a community of people, more than 10 million strong and counting, in which each individual is a pioneer, a trailblazer, an innovator, and a visionary.

These are today's women entrepreneurs, who account for nearly half of all small business owners in America, and who continue to start businesses in record numbers.

Women are creating, building and leading some of the most dynamic enterprises in America. Along the way, often at great risk and against the odds, they have shattered glass ceilings and entrenched stereotypes and have redefined the meaning of leadership and success.

Not long ago, women business owners were virtually invisible and toiled in relative obscurity. Today, their numbers speak of an emerging, powerful constituency with increasing political and economic muscle that is integral in shaping an even brighter future for America.

It is this community to which Enterprising Women is devoted. Our mission is to reflect and amplify the voices of entrepreneurial women; to share their stories of risk and success; to chronicle their growing political, economic and social influence and power; to celebrate their triumphs; to provide solutions to their problems; and to identify and promote a new generation of leaders, along with role models and mentors for tomorrow's leaders.

A Friendly Meeting Place
Every issue of Enterprising Women magazine is like a reunion with an old friend. We provide a friendly meeting place, a public forum, and an international stage for the critical issues confronting women's businesses and daily lives — from the unique perspective and experiences of entrepreneurial women. Written by enterprising women for enterprising women, we are the voice of women entrepreneurs — women who dare to think big, make the leap, and follow their dreams.

Tap Into a Powerful, Emerging Market
As drivers of the new economy, women business owners create more jobs for U.S. workers than all the Fortune 500 companies combined. One in every 11 adult women in America is an entrepreneur, and every minute, five women start a business in this country.

Enterprising Women targets this dynamic, growing market with a magazine that speaks directly to women entrepreneurs. Want to reach the country's top women business owners? There is no better place to do it than in Enterprising Women magazine.

Be A Mentor

Enterprising Women is a partner in the new Million Women Mentors (MWM) initiative.

The initiative supports the engagement of one million science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) mentors — women and men — to increase the interest and confidence of young women to pursue and succeed in STEM degrees and careers.
