Business is better for women in Texas
Reports regularly confirm Texas as one of the best states in the nation for job creation and economic success. A recent report by American Express shows that business is better in Texas, especially for women.
Texas was listed as a national leader in growing women-owned businesses and tops the charts for sales from those businesses. Republicans’ focus on a thriving economic climate has once again proven to be the best solution for Texas women, families, and employers.
According to the 2013 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report commissioned by American Express, Texas is a national leader for working women. Texas was named one of the fastest-growing states for women-owned firms, up 93 percent over the past 16 years, well above the national average of 59 percent. Texas also ranks second in growth in Latina-owned firms, increasing 228 percent since 1997.
Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio all rank in the top four cities nationwide for growth in number of women-owned business and top 10 in growth in economic clout. At $115 billion, Texas ranked second in largest amount of sales from women-owned firms.
