The number of women entrepreneurs is multiplying two to four times faster than men depending on your region of the country. In 2013, 74% of all start-up companies were founded by women. (Source: The Atlanta Business Chronicle). Yet we still are under-represented in C-Suite level positions, politics, and on public and corporate boards. The DeKalb Chamber of Commerce sees and promotes the value of women in business and non-profits. The historical and progressive contributions of women have changed the face of business as we know. WELD exists so that women business leaders, emerging leaders, and community / non-profit leaders can come together and help build and promote women leaders.
