On WITF's Smart Talk - Tuesday, February 13th 2017:
In 2016, the US Small Business Administration estimated there were about 1 million small businesses in Pennsylvania - about 98% of businesses in the state. More than 52,000 of those businesses are in Lancaster County - the most outside of the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh regions.
According to a 2015 report by nerdwallet.com, more than a quarter of those Lancaster businesses are owned by women making Lancaster the 10th best city in the country for female entrepreneurs.
WITF's Smart Talk will discuss cultivating and promoting women-owned businesses and entrepreneurship in Lancaster and Central PA. Joining Smart Talk in studio are Melisa Baez, Director of Women's Business Center and Yessenia Blanco, Microloan Program Coordinator - both with ASSETS, a Lancaster based business development organization and Patricia Robinson, owner and CEO of EVOLVE Training and Development, an organization that supports aspiring entrepreneurs.
